COW HEAVY AND FLORAL

New York City | Film Short | Drama, Comedy

Writer, Director: Richa Rudola

A thought-provoking story about a new mother reexamining her identity, told uniquely through a 4-split screen format.

A woman who is equal parts a mother (COW), writer (HEAVY), person (AND), and a dreamer (FLORAL) feels the world closing in on her. Her baby hasn’t pooped in a few days, she has a writing deadline coming up, she has writer’s block but also can barely find the time needed to write, and has erratic, nonsensical dreams in the few hours she manages to sleep. Coupled with a strained marriage and a sick dog, things come to a head for each of her four personas, just as she’s beginning to find her way. We see her identity crisis play out across the 4 frames in the days leading up to her deadline. What will she look like on the other side?
