Aside from your own work as a performer, you have your own production company, Viscus Film in partnership with your drama school friend Andrea L Goldman. Based in Los Angeles, it is described as having an "avant-garde approach to telling stories on film." Tell us more about it...
Well we are two women, and dramatic actresses at that lol! We founded this company because we really wanted to cater to a female driven and bohemian content and audience. The name Viscus - really says it all, as a noun it means: flesh internal, organs, bowels entrails and heart. As a verb it means to purge stories. So - story telling that comes from that place. We write, produce, act and direct and very often collaborate with other people- and include the community that we are part of.
From director Karl E. Landler: "As different as we perceive ourselves to be, we love, laugh and cry the same."
Co-founder Marem Hassler at the SIFF talks about starting Viscus : "Viscus meaning guts and organs in Latin, and that’s kind of up our alley. We like to make strange and evocative films and projects." Read more here.
