Mrinalini D.S. and Felicia Masias on their Short Film, Being a Female Director, and Women's Empowerment
Writer/Director Mrinalini D.S. and actress Felicia Masias talk about their upcoming short film, Red Mondays and Turquoise Twos, being a female director in the entertainment industry, and the importance of women's empowerment in developing countries. The film tells the story of Ralph Steiner, a 50-year-old mathematician with low self esteem, digging away at his paper for his original idea, in the hope of redeeming his rather uneventful life. His daughter Lara, is a sprightly young classical violinist who views life as a never-ending adventure. What they don’t know about each other is that they share a rare neurological condition called synesthesia – A dreamscape where one associates colors with sounds, smells, tastes and shapes. ‘Red Mondays and Turquoise twos’ is a visual exploration of this father-daughter relationship. Stay tuned for the director's production blog and behind the scenes videos on Film Annex's online film network.
