On June 8th, I wrapped shooting for the short film, Heavy Feathers, written and directed by Joosje Duk (NYU). Heavy Feathers was filmed in Albany, NY. Having grown up in the Albany area, it was an extra special experience filming in a place that means so much to me. I played the role of Elsie.
Heavy Feathers tells the story of Myna, a young girl who finds out that her father, who passed away 18 years ago, might still be somewhere out there. She is eager to find out the truth but the truth isn't easy to come by with a sister, Elsie, who thinks a life in the dark is a better life and a mother, Scarlett, whose truth is a fairy tale she doesn't even believe in herself.
