Eleanore Pienta plays an eccentric woman trying to get from point A to point B and, in the process, finding New York City an obstacle course of casual hostility and bizarre behaviors.
Eleanore Pienta (director/writer/editor) is an actor, video-artist, dancer and director. She has garnered awards for her performances in the indie hits See You Next Tuesday, 7 Chinese Brothers, and A Bad Idea Gone Wrong. Both her video and stage work explore fictional, and oftentimes absurd characters with empathy and sincerity — humor often a by-product. You can also catch her performing with Sunita Mani and Tallie Medel as Cocoon Central Dance Team. Ada premiered at the 2018 New York Film Festival.
We close the 2019 Nitehawk Shorts Festival with eight short films that present stories on the intimacy of the nail salon, absurdist, dark comedies, and powerful coming-of-age stories about friendship.
