In 2017, Laura made her directorial debut with SPEAK, a short film and social issue piece that garnered nationwide selections and premiered at the Nantucket Film Festival.
Her surrealist short THE COUPON has thus far garnered selections from Oscar qualifying and top tier festivals including the St. Louis International Film Festival, Florida Film Festival, Fanastic Fest, ToHorror International Festival, Slash International Film Fest, Atlanta Underground Film Festival, the Lady Filmmakers Film Festival, and the Telluride Horror Show.
Laura’s other recent venture, THE BALDWIN ARCHIVES, is a re-enactment of an iconic 1963 BBC interview that took place between James Baldwin and Peter Duval. The short explores their exchange and the complexities in communing with those different from you to enable shifts in understanding, and just had its U.S. premiere at OutFest in July.
