Burnt-out on her career, Anna Baskin, a successful television actress on a hit network show in Los Angeles, abruptly walks off her set and returns to New York, attempting to reconnect with her two closest friends, theater collaborators she turned her back on years ago. But her journey tears open old wounds and leads to unexpected results for all.
Starring Maggie Siff, Cara Seymour, John Ortiz, and Khandi Alexander, A Woman, A Part is award-winning artist and filmmaker Elisabeth Subrin’s feature film debut.

The Strange Ones

Lauren Wolkstein and Christopher Radcliff
Mysterious events surround two travelers as they make their way across a remote American landscape. On the surface all seems normal, but what appears to be a simple vacation soon gives way to a dark and complex web of secrets.
Based Wolkstein and Radcliff’s short film of the same name, the film stars Alex Pettyfer and James Freedson-Jackson. The film recently won the Grand Prize at the Champs-Elysees film festival in Paris.
