Lady Liberty

Dir. Taylor Lee Nagel | 25 min
Short USA 2019

A coming-of-age comedy following Shea Miller—a 20-something aspiring comedian and assistant to a much more famous comedian—as she learns to claim her queerness and redefine herself.

Shea is caught between conflicting identities: the nice Jewish girl her friends and family have always known, the up-and-coming comic she wants her boss to see, and the confident queer gal she desperately wants to be.
