Film and Media Arts Professor Elisabeth Subrin's A Woman, A Part has extended its New York City run to April 13 at the IFC Center. In addition to succesful ticket sales, the film has also received tremendous reviews from The New York Times and Variety.
The film stars Maggie Siff (co-star of Mad Men, Sons of Anarchy and the new hit Showtime series Billions) who plays a burnt out actress that abandons her role on a successful but sexist network TV show, and runs away to New York hoping to reconnect with two old friends, Kate (Cara Seymour) and Isaac (John Ortiz). As described in The New York Times, the film is "a sophisticated take on female friendship and professional frustration."
In addition to narrative filmmaking, Elisabeth Subrin's other film work includes documentary, experimental, and installations. She has presented in solo exhibitions and screenings at The New York Film Festival, The Vienna International Film Festival, The Whitney Biennial, The Sundance Channel, The Museum of Modern Art, The Jewish Museum, NY, VOLTA/NY, The Institute of Contemporary Art Philadelphia, and in a retrospective at Sue Scott Gallery, in New York.
