In the barrio . . . mortuaries are made for dancing.

A Two Woman One Act is a musical film set on one night in the mortuary of a Los Angeles barrio. Two women, Le Gallienne and La Vibora, find themselves together alone in passionate grief over the death of vicious gangster Panchito – beloved husband to one and treasured brother to the other. With Panchito’s death as the catalyst, the two fierce women are forced to face the hidden and forbidden lust for each other that has secretly tormented their lives.

A Two Woman One Act screened such festivals as The International Film Fest of Cinema & Technology, Outfest: The Los Angeles Gay & Lesbian Film Festival and Fusion: The LA LGBT People of Color Film Fest. It is a recipient of the HSF/McNamara Family Creative Arts Grant (2005).
