About the Featured Guest Short:

OLD MAID (Drama, USA, 2015, In English, 30 min). Special Guest Feature. A thirty-year-old woman refuses to settle for a boyfriend, despite the wishes of her friends and family. The Government, however, has its own plan! “As an artist, I am committed to creating stories about people on the fringes, people whose voices aren’t always heard or whose voices have been outright silenced. As a survivor of violence, I am aware of two things: how debilitating it is to be under someone else’s control, and the power and freedom brought on by a second chance on life. No longer willing to put my dreams on hold, I found the courage to do something I had never done: make a film.” –Sol Crespo, Pregones/PRTT 2018 Step Up Artist in Residence
