Brooklyn girl gang member Krank, after being shot in a mysterious guinea pig lab rescue incident, comes home from the hospital in a wheelchair to find her cats are gone, her mother is still insane and her gang is kicking her out.

Heavy Eyeliner Basketball HD Video / short subject documentary film / work in progress
Heavy Eyeliner Basketball is a short documentary film about a wild women’s (and transmen’s) basketball game that takes place in New York City. Founded by a non athletic artist, who states, ‘the only rule is eyeliner,’ the game attracts a wide range of characters: scientists, comedians, musicians, artists and roller derby stars with all skill levels from insanely talented athletes to ‘artistic types’ who hadn’t played since grade school. Murray Hill, Katrina del Mar, Suzy Hotrod, Betsy Todd, Genny Pavitt Angel Favorite and Angie Witte break down the controversies between jocks and freaks, the injuries, and ultimately, the fun of it all.
