Each Other

Directed by Sarah Tabibzadeh
Narrative Short
Iran |16 min | 2019


People are living with their personality layers, and they take them to “Layeromat” just like their clothes. A young man who works in one of these “Layeromat” accidentally loses one of his layers. Despite his long search, he couldn’t find it. But through an inner revolution during his searching, he reaches a new understanding of his being.



Voices Inside our heads are always speaking to us and this inevitable question, Which one am I? Which one is me?
An Infinite number of “me”s are born throughout our lives. We nurture them, consume them, and unexpectedly lose some of them. But the voices inside us and our accompanying color do not turn off. It’s impossible to live without them on the path to find ourselves; we have to pass through turmoil, empathize with ourselves, and stay alive.
Maybe somewhere we could move past this other one and make the same color and the same voice.

The Lost Boyz of Chicago

Directed by Justin Jarrett
Documentary Short
USA | 16 min | 2019


FROM THE AWARD-WINNING TEAM that brought you “For Aaron: The Documentary” comes the inspiring true story of the Lost Boyz of Chicago – a youth baseball league playing to reclaim their community from gang violence within one of the of the most violent neighborhoods in America.



The violence in Chicago, specifically the South Side of Chicago has been talked about and discussed in the media a lot in recent years and for good reason – it is statistically one of the most violent places in America today. However, what the media doesn’t dive very far into is how the community is fighting back from within. There are a lot of people like LaVonte who are
products of this community – born and raised in this community that are trying to rewrite the narrative and give each and every kid an opportunity to succeed beyond the South Side. This is
what drew me to this project. My team and I spent a lot of time living/sleeping in the South Side where we were filming because we wanted to experience the community first hand and really
get to know this group of extraordinary people. There were certainly challenges, but at the end of the day we wanted to shine some light on the good that is being done and perhaps open up a dialogue about what else could be accomplished to combat the violence if something as simple as baseball can make such an enormous impact on a child’s life.

Sold Down The River

Directed by Karen Erbach Lawlor
Documentary Short
USA |15 min | 2019


In the state of Wisconsin, third world water conditions have become an epidemic, brought on by factory farms and big agribusiness. Legislators seem to put the interests of their corporate donors over the health and safety concerns of their constituents, and they continue to support bills that protect big business and polluters. This disturbing trend has been happening across the United States.

I have two produced screenplays – “For Hire,” a feature film starring Rob Lowe and Joe Mantegna and “Mask of Fear” for ABC Television, MGM/UA. I was a top ten finalist in the Walt Disney Writing Fellowship Competition for her screenplay, “The Scapegoat,” which was also a finalist in the Austin Film Festival. “3400 Milles” is currently under option. As a director, I received the CINE Golden Eagle Award for my short, dramatic film, “Lisa,” shot by Academy Award winner, Janusz Kaminski, which aired on PBS. I also received the Special Merit Award at the Illinois Film Festival for my short film, “In Bed.” I have published articles in American Cinematographer on Schindler’s List, Wild Palms, Phenomenon and Nothing in Common. Most recently, I have written, directed and produced commercials for Chevrolet Austin, Chevrolet Rome, Lamisil, TEEB, Yoplait, Nature Valley, Chevrolet Rio and others. My spot for the 100th anniversary of the Girl Scouts of America aired nationwide and was written up in the New York Times, and I was invited to speak on a panel for Innovation Uncensored hosted by Fast Company.
