Writer/director Marina Rice Bader (Exec. Producer of Elena Undone, A Perfect Ending) will make her directorial debut at the 32nd Annual Outfest Los Angeles LGBT Film Festival with the world premiere of her feature film ‘Anatomy of a Love Seen’.
Outfest is a Los Angeles-based nonprofit organisation that promotes equality by creating, sharing, and protecting LGBT stories on the screen. They officially announced the complete programming lineup for thier 32nd LGBT Film Festival.
Bader’s lesbian-themed feature film will be screening Friday July 18th at The Directors Guild of America in West Hollywood, CA. The premiere will be followed by an exclusive cocktail reception after-party with the entire cast and crew.
As the driving force behind Soul Kiss Films, her own independent film company, Bader’s mind and artistic direction is only focused on one goal: to create evocative, entertaining, and compelling movies by women, for women and about women. And she’s already successfully planting the seeds to do just that with ‘Anatomy of a Love Seen’ and the upcoming ‘Raven’s Touch’.
‘Anatomy of a Love Seen’ staring Sharon Hinnendael, Jill Evyn and Constance Brenneman, is a film within a film that explores love in all its painful and messy glory. The story takes us back six months, when actresses Zoe (Sharon Hinnendael) and Mal (Jill Evyn) fell for each other at exactly the same moment in time while filming a love scene.
After five blissful months together Zoe was decimated when Mal walked away. Three miserable weeks later a very lucrative network broadcast deal was in the works. They only had one request…re-shoot the love scene. Welcome to the set. Shot in five days, this improvised film based on Bader’s story, characters and outline fulfilled her desire to create a very organic and visceral experience.
