                     The Black Beauty Film Poster
In 2018, she was brought on to write and direct the modern day reprisal of Anna Sewell's classic BLACK BEAUTY for Constantin Film's Jeremy Bolt and Robert Kulzer. Filming in 2019 in Cape Town, South Africa which doubled for the United States - her reimagining transformed Black Beauty into a wild horse rounded up in the American West, directly paralleling Sewell's original intentions for writing the iconic novel - which was to give voices to the horses of her time in the late 1800s. She hopes that by illuminating the issues wild horses are going through in the United States today, real and necessary change can finally be made. ---From IMDb Biography
