Title | What Here Needs Love?
Director | Daniel Antebi
Producer | Reid Hannaford
NYU Affiliation | Undergraduate
- Leah (Lead): Female, 18-26: Leah is the mixed race daughter of Ty and Sofia. She grew up a tomboy with a loud laugh and a strong respect for her parents. Her fussiness and rebellion never extended past the occasional tiff with her younger brother and a kindness radiates from her. In her teen years, Leah's father accidentally set off a house fire that consumed almost everything Leah loved including her mother and brother. Her kindness hardened and Leah left her father's care to live with her grandmother — working as a cocktail waitress in a club and entering the down spiral full of drugs and pain. Leah now lives alone as she works to find love for herself again.
