Mi Isla is my love letter to the island of Mallorca, Spain. The story is inspired by autobiographical events and my love for Mallorcas people and culture.
I grew up in Mallorca until I moved to New York to become an actress and further onto Los Angeles to become a filmmaker. This film started with me winning a Pitch competition held by the Mallorca Film Commission. I play Sammy and my actual daughter plays 2-year-old Alma in the film. My husband is the DP (www.lipski.tv) - it’s a family affair!
Sometimes it feels like my generation has taken the opportunities of travel to a whole other level and we forget how great our home was/is. This is a story about coming home and re-evaluating what really matters in life.
Shot on location in Palma de Mallorca, Spain, and Los Angeles California.
I am currently in development for the Feature Film Script version.
