Frank & Lively announces fourth film in all-female slate

This time last year, Frank & Lively announced its intention to produce a minimum of four short films that celebrate unique female stories and are produced by a predominantly female crew. We are now pleased to announce the fourth film in this slate.

By first-time Indonesian director, Tiara Westlake, MAYA is a multi-cultural drama about homesickness, isolation and the struggle of finding your identity in a foreign place. This touching story is based on the Indonesian superstition that moments before a person is about to die, their soul is separated from their body to say one last goodbye. This film in now in post production.

The contradiction of the film industry remains a complex one when it comes to the representation of gender. There is much discussion about how this gender imbalance needs to change, and yet female writers and directors continue to be overlooked. Our new slate aims to address this.
