My first film premiere at the historic Prytania Theatre :)

Ah, this was so cool. It's the first time I've ever gone to a screening of a film I've been in, and it was magically. I felt like such a fancy actor lady. THANK YOU filmmakers Sally Darr, Molly, and Joey :)

New short film released!

Visible Poetry Project just released my new short film, Love Waltz with Fireworks, a lovely collaboration with Seattle-based poet, Kelli Russell Agodon. So grateful to the wonderful humans I worked with on this one :)

Here's a little more info on Visible Poetry Project and what they're all about:

The Visible Poetry Project was founded in 2017 with the goal of bringing together a collective of filmmakers to create a series of videos that present poems as short films. Drawing from works created by renowned poets, including Neil Gaiman and Tato Laviera, as well as emerging poets, the Visible Poetry Project strives to make poetry accessible, exploring how we can recreate and experience poems through the medium of film.

Throughout the month of April - National Poetry Month - we release one visual poem each day. An exercise in translation and a reclamation of both poetic and film discourses, the resulting thirty videos explore how we read, interpret, visualize, and hear poetry.
