OrthoGirl is a romance about a secular Jewish woman (Zoey) & an Ultra Orthodox man (Azel). Amazing projects such as Unorthodox & Disobedience explore the beauty of breaking free. OrthoGirl shows the other side of that desire. Zoey says she yearns for “something—someone—spiritual.” This performance of “Nothing Fails” by Madonna conveys the tone of OrthoGirl.

I have written the screenplay for OrthoGirl as a short film & currently seek investors &/or co-producers. The short can also serve as proof of concept for a feature or a series. For exposure I will submit the film to Jewish & other top tier film festivals.

Screenplay awarded Best Romance at 2023 Wallachia International Film Festival (Bucharest)
