In Good Company
I had the great good fortune to have met Mr. Pryor when I was a kid, planning my first professional film.
He was signed to do a great role in it… Which he would have been brilliant in – even in his wheelchair … – it’s still a grief for me that the deal experienced delays , due to sheer greed on the part of the film financiers. It’s one of the reasons I decided to go completely + #authentic indie.

“ What happens before you shatter the glass ceiling ?
What does it even really mean – to ‘shatter glass ceilings’ ?
In my movie,
‘eVe’ as ‘every-woman’ has left the proverbial ‘eden’ – to start a ‘garden’ of her own.
We find her, where she ‘landed’
after ‘walking out of eden’ –
it’s a little rough for now – her suit-case barely unpacked – the closet over-crowded and flowers breaking through the floor, yearning to find the sun.
eVe explores : what happens after you shatter glass ?
Belting out : ‘ I believe in myself ‘ is an easy platitude – but … arriving at a place of one’s own – a place – where it’s SO incongruent – to take one more step, remaining steeped in the old terrors of abandonment or loss – while still trying to ‘win’ + live a joyful life ?
Dancing ‘backwards in high heels’ as Ginger Rogers described – in order to take one step forward ? a place – where ‘eVe’ as every-woman – must finally face the demons threatening her very survival a place – where she knows in her bones : SHE CAN + MUST rely on herself now – a self which is not alone – but made up of many other ‘every-women’ she can call upon to self-rescue –
the ‘every-women’ are represented by ‘Lila’ – eVe’s yin-yang-twin lover + partner when everything – including her own faith in others or in the world or ‘god’ – is shattered – together – eVe + Lila – can heal the world.
To ‘shatter glass ceilings’ we must be willing to dare first – to be shattered from your old disempowering beliefs about self and culture.
Now that I’ve explored what happens BEFORE and during — I can’t wait for my next movie – to share what happened NEXT ! “
Based on a story woven from true-life events, after a brutal attack, we enter the dreamscape of eVe, determined to save the life of her lesbian lover, Lila.
A bittersweet romance, an allegorical virginity fantasy, love-is-love-triangle story, bordering on polyamory, the world we experience is an immersive Sci-Fi Triple-F-Rated Fantasy Fairy Tale of the Global Girl awakening to the legacy of herself in a Venice Beach, Cali Surf Shack (eden).
Our experience of inner landscape, hovers over the cutting edge of life, death, dreams + reality.
Lush, green, yet minimalist.
In two hours, Miss Evening Lili / eVe Striptease Dancer / PHD STEM Science Candidate (Cali Lili) will present Oral Arguments to the PHD Committee. After last night, all bets are off. This morning is eVe’s final prep session with Advisor Doctor Godard / god Chair of Gender Studies (Wings Hauser).
He wants to know eVe’s conclusions. Problem is: eVe has awoken to so many questions, she can no longer settle for Doc’s limited world.
Shot mostly On the Water with an original 13 song Rock Rap World Beats soundtrack Album to be released with Movie, ‘this female is not yet rated’ unfurls mysteries of an untold interracial love story between women of color eVe + Lilith / ‘Lila.’
Smashing story structure, breaking boundaries, born organically from a graphic novel / script that is surreal, narrative, love letter, declaration of independence, political protest for Democracy on behalf of all vulnerable lives in the balance.
Told ‘Like A Girl,’ with a sexy -smart edge, this story is dedicated to Mother Earth, endangered communities: global girls, students, LGBTQ, bisexual, trans, BLM, Dreamers, indigenous cultures + wildlife / climate communities, especially ocean life.
Are we trapped in a liminal state-of-consciousness between life + death?
