“It’s a heartfelt story populated by characters that are haunted by loss and painful memories, but still cling to the hope that they can somehow reconnect and become a real family.”Sasha Krane , LSTFI resident director and teacher
Sasha Krane, the Strasberg Institute’s resident director and teacher of acting for film and television, and his wife Katharine McEwan have won several awards for their most recent film, SOLITARY.
SOLITARY was the opening night film of the 2015 London Independent Film Festival, winning Best UK Feature. It debuted at the 2015 Idyllwild International Festival of Cinema and was nominated for eight awards and won three – Best Feature, Best Screenplay and a Best Actress award for Sarina Taylor. It also won a Remi Award at WorldFEST-Houston for Best Dramatic Feature and has been invited to screen in several other film festivals around the world.
SOLITARY was directed by Sasha Krane and written and produced by Katharine McEwan, who also has a lead acting role in the film. Roger Taylor of the British rock band Queen composed the film’s original score.
“SOLITARY focuses on a fractured family living distinctly separate lives in a seaside town on the south coast of England. It’s a heartfelt story populated by characters that are haunted by loss and painful memories, but still cling to the hope that they can somehow reconnect and become a real family.” -Sasha Krane
