“Messay Films: in conversation with Sindhu Thirumalaisamy”

“A Love Story”

Asa Mendelsohn is an artist, writer, and teacher working on a film that moves between quiet places in Southern California, where in the mid-2000s a grassroots movement resisted private military development, and New York City, where the filmmaker is coming from. The work pursues unlikely coalitions, friendship, and change. Asa is learning and teaching as a lecturer in Critical Gender Studies at UC San Diego.
