Lights, Camera, Action! Female Filmmakers Take Hold of Cameras in This New Film by Lorna Landvik

 In Film, Filmmaker Profile

Lights, camera, action! One filmmaker from North Dakota is making a stand for female filmmakers everywhere. Lorna Landvik manages to balance a hardworking lifestyle in which she is an author, an entertainer, and an antic dealer. Her most recent work is ‘Oh My Stars’ which is a proof of concept of her Depression-era novel.

Lorna says her movie, which is based on her popular book, is a story of hate being out-maneuvered by love, a story of joy and talent trumping fear and doubt. There’s music, heart, soul, and humor in it — and our hope is that Hollywood will heed the call of millions who want a story about people who fly, transform and avenge in more human ways, but are still superheroes.
