“Swipe NYC” New Featurette (AUDIO)

By Charlotte Robinson, July 06, 2023

This week I talked with Latina filmmaker Sue Zarco Kramer & cast members of “Swipe NYC”, Sue’s semi-autobiographic dramedy featurette that has already won film festival awards across the country. First I talked to Sue & the film’s star Lisa Edelstein (House, Girlfriends Guide to Divorce) who plays Syd a newly divorced empty nester who throws herself into the vulnerable, scary, sexy world of online dating. Each date serves as a metaphor of Syd picking up the broken pieces of her life & regaining her sense of sexuality, confidence, empowerment & independence. Along the way she encounters her stellar cast of supporting actors including Richard Schiff (Wakanda Forever, The Good Doctor, The West Wing) & Bridget Moynahan (Blue Bloods, I Robot) among others. I also had the opportunity to get their spin on the current WGA Writer’s Strike & address our LGBTQ issues. Then I talked with Richard Schiff who plays Steve about how he got involved in the film & what he hopes to accomplish with his career. Next I chatted with Angela Wong Carbone who plays Jane & David Kelsey who plays Luke about their roles & how David would like to see “Swipe NYC” developed into a streaming series. The film is also produced by Kelsey along with Bridget Moynahan, Heather Sederquist, Cheryl Bayer & Sue Zarco Kramer. Additional cast includes Omari K. Chancellor, Justin Marcel McManus, Christiane Seidel, David Walton & Brennie Tellu. “Swipe NYC” premiered at The Beverly Hills Film Festival last April winning the best audience award & will be in San Francisco at the Jewish film festival on July 29th & August 4th winning the coveted freedom expression award. LISTEN
