Why I'm Leaving New York

2020, Independent dark comedy, 6min

Starring Anna Suzuki, from "New Amsterdam" "Do The Right Thing," "Will & Grace" and "High Maintenance."

They say you're not a real New Yorker until you battle the super rats that occupy Murray Hill, or kayak down Canal Street, or catch Victorian Brain Fever after wandering too close to the Chelsea quarantine zone.


A short dark comedy playing on the "why I'm leaving New York" essay trope as a woman contemplates leaving the flooded, abandoned, ravaged city she's lived in for years.
