Finding Shelter Trailer

I’m very happy to announce that I have been accepted and become a member of the Alliance of Women Directors.  

In September and October 2018 my short film Zohra screened in NYC and Coachella at the Official Latino Film Festival where we were nominated for best comedy and best actress awards.

In October 2018 selections from Shelter were presented at ENAT’s, (National Theater School of Mexico) International Theater Festival in Mexico City.  Shelter was directed by Martin Acosta and original cast member Andres Velez performed his role with actors from ENAT in Spanish.

I led workshops on Noir and Archetypes with a terrific group of students.
