Lobster Fra Diavolo, a comedy written by Jane Barbara and directed by Oriana Oppice about 80-year-old Nonna preparing the Italian Feast of the Seven Fishes, embraces the Italian-American experience of love, family gatherings, and laughter. The film honors the sacrifices made by women immigrants to make a life for their families and teach us how to become women. In The Goblin Baby, Shoshana Rosenbaum, mother of three, explores the experiences of the first year of motherhood, the idea of changelings and mother’s intuition. Lost and Found, directed by Oriana Oppice, involves two older ladies (Barbara and Trudy) and is set on a bench in Queens, NY. From a box belonging to Barbara’s late husband, the ladies learn a decades-old secret about their husbands and the close friendship they shared. Eulonda Kay Lea is the writer and director of Ode to Rosa, a comedy about a happy go-lucky bus driver who agrees to work the worst bus route in the city – the X2 bus, from downtown H Street, in NE DC to Minnesota Avenue, SE, complete with unruly passengers who fail to honor Rosa Parks or respect the ride.
