ELI, BRIEFLY // Dir. Celine Sutter // 2022

A young, newly successful actor Eli loses their keys after blacking out at their friend Gray's birthday party. Told in an invasive time structure, the film follows Eli the next day as they visit people from their past in order to get a spare set while piecing together what happened the night before. Through the process of reckoning with Gray and seeing their mother, Eli is forced to face their past self, and confront their self-destructive behavior towards the people closest to them.

GODS, GENERALLY // Dir. Celine Sutter // 2020

As a superstorm is hitting the New York City area we are thrown into the lives of a mother and daughter in a mandatory evacuation zone, and a woman in hospice care upstate forced to celebrate her birthday alone. This is the story of a storm and a flood, one that has happened and will continue to happen: "people have the tendency to think they are gods, generally." I wrote, directed, and edited the short film for my senior year thesis project at NYU Gallatin.
