Ashes – Cannes 2015

Here are some stills and photos of the award winning short film “Ashes” I had the pleasure to star in at Cannes 2015 and compete for Best Actress as part of the Creative Mind Groups “Made in Cannes 2015” filmmaking program.

I loved my team and we became family very quickly. I know this happens on most projects, but something about the international mix and dynamic range of energies (queue hippy music!) really struck a chord with me and I think that influenced my performance.  Ok, I won’t get into frequencies of love, I promise!

Pics below and a teaser video here:
