Director Michelle Bossy and Actress/Producer Mara Kassin chatted with Gadi about their long working friendship, their latest short film and much more.
Overall, klutz. is a story of perseverance and family. Using universal themes, klutz. sees Zowie (Malka Wallick) struggling as a first time novelist when she is thrust into the throes of grief as she loses her sister Lida (Mara Kassin). Zowie also seemingly loses her gravitational pull as a supernatural side effect of her grief, which allows for her to reconnect with Lida every time she falls or feels pain. However, the space-time-continuum giveth, the space-time-continuum taketh away, and the next time she hurts, her sister is gone. When present, Lida acts as a force of nature and attempts – in her plucky, bullying way – to get Zowie back on her feet and to focus on her writing.
This Saturday the short film klutz. is having its festival premiere at the 24th Dances With Film festival in LA at the famed Chinese Theater.
