Cousins, a Feirstein winner of the 2021 Gotham Student Short Film Showcase award, is currently streaming on Focus Features digital platforms and Jet Blue inflight entertainment systems! Directing Student recently spoke with Filmmaker Magazine about about the importance of casting actors who had a strong connection to Caribbean culture, drawing upon improvisation in the rehearsal process and her advice to incoming film students making short films.
Cousins premiered at the Maryland Film Festival last month and this month will be playing the Third Horizon Film Festival on June 25th, a film festival for movies about the Caribbean and the Caribbean diaspora.
