Her recent independent film work includes:
A Song for Imogene: Feature narrative. A sudden death and unexpected pregnancy force an impoverished woman to decide between freeing herself or remaining a relic of her drive-by Southern town.
Erased: Feature documentary. After his friend is drugged and raped, Mike, a software technologist sets out to learn everything he can about drug-facilitated sexual assault, even dosing himself with a common “date rape drug”. Erased explores the impact and prevalence of DFSA, showing how rape culture makes every aspect of this crime perfectly constructed to remain invisible — underreported, unbelieved, and easy to get away with.
All Choked Up: narrative short written and directed by Allison Volk.
