CGiii Comment

Talk about creating an atmosphere...this does it!

Casting...where did you find these people? Perfection.

If only the song wasn't so bloody awful!


MADAME D. (2020) short film by John Lavin from Michael Martin New Orleans on Vimeo.

The(ir) Blurb...

"David Lynch meets Cabaret in this distinctly New Orleans take on grand guignol in the time of plague."

A Mrs. Dalloway for our times, "Madame D." follows a gender-fluid loner during one day of quarantine. Unable to cope with the reality rapidly descending around her, she chooses to exit the stage on her terms: a chanteuse once more.
