All the Rage

All the Rage

Above a busy DC street, a group of women is learning to fight. Aggressive and unapologetic, Colleen, the group's leader, inspires her students to get angry, get strong, and get comfortable in their own power. The film follows these women as they learn to harness their own strength, struggling against social norms and experiences that have made them feel powerless.

PA Indie Shorts Film Festival, November 2019 (WINNER, Best Student Short)

ONE FALL

ONE FALL

An exploration into the world of independent professional wrestling, and the intersection of art, theater, athleticism, and sport. We follow a promoter, wrestler, and coach working to bring indie wrestling culture back to the nation's Capitol at the first show in D.C. in decades. There is joy, pain, sacrifice, and gain, all for the adoration of their die hard fans, and the glory that comes with stepping into the ring.
