Official Trailer

Only Dance Can Save Us is the first, feature length film I have written and directed. In 2017, I was awarded an artist grant by the prestigious Jerome Foundation to cover the production costs. The film centers around a contemporary dance choreographer who uses her art to come to terms with the loss of her estranged mentor and contemplate her future as an artist.


The film will be having its world premiere on October 22nd, 2019 as part of the Twin Cities Film Festival.
