Filmmaking: Love is Love with Lisa Donato

I am beyond excited to tell you about my fabulous guest this week, Director Lisa Donato. Lisa’s first feature film, Gossamer Folds, was just selected for Geena Davis’s Bettonville Film Festival. Gossamer Folds, set in 1986, is about ten-year-old Tate, who is uprooted and moved unwillingly to the suburbs of Kansas City. As his parent's marriage unravels, Tate finds solace in the unlikely friendships of his next-door neighbors: a retired college professor and his transgender daughter, Gossamer.

Lisa Donato has directed so many fantastic short films including: There You Are, starring Jen Richards, now screening at the Lunafest Film Festival across the country.  Foxytrot, Spunkle, and a docu-series, Behind the Drag are a few more of the irresistible films that Lisa has created and directed. Join me for the ride!

Lisa also co-wrote Signature Move with Fawzia Mirza, a hilarious dramedy about 2 seemingly mismatched lesbian lovers, now on Amazon. 

Lisa Donato is a film director, screenwriter, and activist who is dedicated to centering the stories of people and communities relegated to the margins. She lives in Austin (Texas) with her wife, niece, and siamese rescue cat. When she's not making movies and videos, she's making playlists on Spotify or photographing nature and water reflections. She's a taco enthusiast and I often thinks about how she could feasibly bathe in a giant tub of mashed potatoes.

Watch Gossamer Folds here.
