5Q's w/Marcia Haufrecht "Full Moon and High Tide in the Ladies Room" Director


SUNDAY BLOCK K | 3:30 pm

#1: Can you describe your movie and why somebody should see it in less than 280 characters?

"Full Moon and High Tide in the Ladies Room" is a slice of life film in NYC, so of course it’s packed. Set in the mid 70’s and though the styles and clothes are different from today, the trials and joys remain the same. People struggle through life without direction, love without responsibility. Parents don’t understand and live on a different planet. Friends support and disappoint.

#2: What do you want the Borrego Springs Film Festival audience to know about your film that isn’t obvious from its title?

The dilemma of an unexpected pregnancy for a single woman with an unstable life.

#3: What is your movie making background? Tell us about yourself.

My experience prior to this film is as an actress. Originally I graduated Performing Arts high school as a dancer I have been and still am an actress, director, writer, painter and dog/cat lover.


#4: What was the biggest lesson learned in getting your film made?

To know what you need and be lovingly assertive. One can’t waver, but should be prepared to make adjustments and changes when necessary.

#5: What does the future hold for your film and you?

The shadow knows. I would love to do the feature of Full Moon, and I also have another feature written, but first I’d like to do a 3 character short (10 minutes).
