Serena" selected for the NYC Winterfest and produced for three nights

A Note From the Director

Silent film, a lost art form – I have always been a great lover of silent film. I find that moving images, without sound, have a magical quality about them that enables the viewer to perceive life in a different way. I also believe that lack of reliance on words to tell a story pushes the filmmaker to become more visually creative.

Current audiences are not subjected enough to silent films and many have never had the experience altogether. I think that audiences can find great joy if exposed to it. It was my deepest wish to create a modern day story using this traditional art form in hopes of touching people in a long forgotten way.
