TWENTY is an in development film project about four friends from Santa Cruz who go to a Roaring Twenties party and end up in an unexpected adventure. TWENTY is a unique and inventive story conceived by Hilary Davidson (she played Celia in my Community TV show Last Call), and she'll also be directing.

Now is time when the wheel of the year turns to its shortest day and longest night. Often this is a time of reflection and thinking back on the events of the year, but this winter solstice feels like a time of looking forward and leaving the year behind without looking back.
