When three filmmakers were challenged to create a film about a touchy topic, they came up with a unique solution--a silent-movie style film that conveys key concepts about personal hygiene with comic-like graphics.

One of the filmmakers, Norean Goldston, plays the role of the central character, "Smelly." Although pleasant and friendly, Smelly isn't very welcome when she joins a group of students in the lunchroom. She has no idea why until a friend gently lets her know that personal hygiene is the problem.

Smelling Smelly is an unusual and effective ice breaker on a topic that most people are timid to address. And as a bonus, the producers note that "Millions of germs were harmed in the making of this production.”
