About our film:
In a vibrant, sun-soaked Brooklyn apartment in early spring, six powerhouse women gather to support one of their own. With laughter, wine, and expert egg decorating skills, we witness intimate, playful portraits of their successes, hardships, loss of fertility, loss of self, and how the power of love and friendship can create new “birth”.
Egg Party is based, in part, on a real-life Easter egg dyeing party I attended. As I checked my calendar on the day, I realized I’d accidentally labeled it (or perhaps subconsciously), “Dying Egg Party”. As a suddenly single woman in her mid-30s, this mislabeling hit me hard: “Kersti, that’s bleak!” This event, in tandem with a number of friends’ challenges with fertility, infused the initial drafts.
The juxtaposition of these women dyeing Easter eggs and facing the late summer of their lives is captured in this short film. We watch the afternoon light shift around these old friends, and though we observe humorous conversations about sex, love, dating, and aggressive skin care, we also come to discover these women have gathered together for a much deeper reason.
Whimsical yet poignant, the short film Egg Party gives voice to the little-spoken-of but all-too-common trials and experiences of deciding what to do with your “egg” in this life. From readings to conversations with loved ones and our artistic collaborators, this "egg" seems BIGGER than all of us. WE CANNOT WAIT TO SHARE IT WITH YOU!
We know this small film will have an immense impact. It will delight, surprise, and comfort those who are experiencing these challenges.
No yolk, we need $10,000 in order to bring the vibrant whimsical world of Egg Party to life by March 14, 2020.
Just like the ladies of Egg Party, time is of the essence and we are moving quickly to make this little film a reality. We have FOUR WEEKS to raise these funds by March 12th, 2020.
Why the rush you ask? A number of our resources (actors, crew schedules, location resources, etc.) are currently limited to this window of time, and we plan to strike while the griddle is HOT. We can scramble while the butter is melted. We can place the eggs in the pot while the water is boiling. You get it.
Of course we need more egg puns, but we always need your love and support.
We have some production needs/volunteer needs if you happen to be in the New York area for March 14-15. Thank you for spreading the word about this project. We are egg-cited!
