Join us for February’s virtual NYWIFT Member Screening of before/during /after, a narrative feature produced, written by, and starring member Finnerty Steeves and executive produced by NYWIFT Board President Jamie Zelermyer.
before / during / after is the story of Jennie Lonergan, a middle-aged NYC theatre actress who is forced to figure out the kind of person she wants to be when her seemingly perfect 15-year marriage comes to an abrupt end after she catches her husband having an affair.
Watch the film then attend a Q&A with the creative team, moderated by NYWIFT Community Engagement Director Katie Chambers.
"As always and even more so today, women in our business are taking up the mantle of courage and truth-telling and consciousness, and they move and inspire me. We are awake now in a way we have never been before."
"My faith is renewed by the way I experience this vanguard moving through the world with such grace at such a complex time. Speaking truth to power and creating a legacy for the women and the men who follow."
