I thrilled to announce that I directed a new feature film, Seaside, a female-driven revenge thriller, in my home state of Oregon from April 11 to May 1. With an all Oregon crew and a cast of New York and Portland actors, including Ariana DeBose (Hamilton), Matt Shingledecker (Wicked, Rent), Steffanie Leigh (Mary Poppins) and Sharon Washington (The Scottboro Boys, Michael Clayton), we shot in Portland and at the visually stunning Oregon Coast.

Currently I’m having a show of 8 color photos from Cuba at Bosco’s Mercantile, a home furnishings store in Saugerties, New York. You can see a few of them on my photo page. If you’re interested in purchasing a 16 x 20 inch color print, please get in touch.
Last year I shot author photos for my husband, Ed Boland, whose memoir about a year teaching in a New York City public school, The Battle for Room 314, is now a New York Times bestseller, and for Rachel Harper, whose beautiful novel, This Side of Providence, came out in April. If you’re interested in author photos or portraits, please contact me.
My recent short film, How to Make it to the Promised Land, about a girl who has to play a Holocaust role-play game at summer camp, starring Marlane Barnes (Twilight, Sons of Anarchy, Masters of Sex) and Noah Harpster (Transparent). Last year it was a finalist for the Boston Jewish Film Festival Short Film Competition and earlier was featured as the daily short pick on the website, Film Shortage. Previously it premiered on Short of the Week and was short of the month for the San Francisco Jewish Film Festival.
