It's New York City. Seductive. Claustrophobic. Over-saturated. Pauline Jean, a would-be actress is afraid to connect with others... and herself. She follows an unusual list of daily rituals that take her down a rabbit hole of dopplegangers, façades, and existential games. Along the way, she tries to navigate the waters of a murky relationship with an old friend. Is change possible? This is Pauline's emotional journey in the search for identity and intimacy in the city of beautiful masks and stalled connections.
Emmanuelle Vill, Andrea Leigh, Ernest Waddell, and Tigist Selam are amongst the film's ensemble cast.
Dear Pauline Jean is Bruno's graduate thesis film at the prestigious London Film School Graduate Film Program. Her previous film The Things I See (which highlights the natural calamities of growing up a young girl dealing with news about the earthquake in Haiti) is currently traveling the international film festival circuit.
