This week on The Missouri Review Soundbooth Podcast, as part of our podcast series covering the Citizen Jane Film Festival, we had the opportunity to speak with Cara Greene Epstein, executive producer, writer, and co-director of Dragonfly.

Dragonfly began its journey in the world of film as a 10-minute short and grew, with the help of its wonderful cast and crew, to become a 76-minute, full-fledged feature film. Cara, a professional actor, writer, director, producer, and teaching artist, wanted to begin producing her own films, pitched her idea to friends, and thus Dragonfly has taken flight as a delayed coming-of-age story examining themes of homecoming, family, and disease. It follows Anna Larson and her quest for truth as she returns home to help her mother who has recently been diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s.

In this podcast, Cara shares her adventures in filmmaking, inspirations, passions, and professional ambitions.
