Hilda is a realist tribute to octogenarian New Yorker artist Hilda O'Connell, who lived shoulder-to-shoulder with the greatest painters of the Abstract Expressionist movement from Resnick to deKooning,  and became a member of the Aegis Gallery in the '60s.

Just like the dance and song that so inspired O'Connell's work—she's a faithful fan of Fred Astaire—Hilda's lyrical story is broken up by a duet of visual refrains: B-roll of the artist as she is now—reading, painting, and walking her faithful dog— and imaginative scenes reminiscent of the musicals of Astaire's era.


Hilda had it's world premiere at the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival.
