LADY PARTICIPATE UPDATE: Too many ladies, too little time. I'm changing things up a little to have TWO newsletters a week in your inbox. Twice as many feature, shorter scroll. See you Thursday for Caroline Conrad, one of Adinah's Ladies we should know! See all the ladies I've interview here!
Filmmaker Adinah Dancyger recently screened her short film Chopping Onions at film festival around the world including Berlinale and Cannes Film Festival. She is currently in post production on her first feature Girl Props, a film about about four girls who embark on a seemingly spontaneous road trip through America. In the meantime, Dancyger has been directing music videos and short films. The above still is from Mykki Blanco recites "I Want a Dyke for President" (1992) Poem by Zoe Leonard, directed by Dancyger for Dazed.

Name: Adinah Dancyger   ::   Occupation: Filmmaker   ::   Age: 23   ::   City: New York City

When you're not creating: Researching, walking, watching movies, and seeing other humans. Creating tends to be an isolating sport so it’s important to be in the company of others to avoid full insanity. 

To cope with a long commute: Writing down thoughts and words, reading, and appreciating the simple act of sitting in silence. 

Best work environment: My apartment, friends’ homes and bath tubs. I worked in an Indian Restaurant during the daytime once, highly recommend it. 

Why you love your city: Diversity. Being able to walk everywhere. It is as easy to engage with the loudness as it is to remove yourself from it. 

Best thing you ever made: My friend Victoria and I made a movie where two women interview each other. We played these characters. We shot this on my defunct VHS camera and tried to play it back but couldn’t. It is lost forever. 

What's next: I’m currently in post-production for a feature I co wrote, directed, an act with fellow artists and friends, Victoria Cronin and India Menuez. It’s a road trip narrative titled “Girl Props”. I’m writing a new short film about a young woman going through a day after an unfortunate happening happens to her. In between these longer term projects I plan to push out smaller-scale works to exercise a different part of my brain.

Ladies who we should know: Zia Anger, Milah Libin, Victoria Cronin, Devon Head, Maia Ruth Lee, Caroline Conrad, Nina RyserLayla AlterIndia Menuez & Carmen Hall
