Their dream is to live the art life. The main characters Aqua and Becca are looking for a more authentic and deeper connection in their love life. Set to debut in early 2019, the film showcases the artist’s experience of living and dating in Los Angeles with all the stigmas and pressures of society. Inspired by many female performance artists and experimental filmmakers from Maya Deren to Yoko Ono, Anastasio takes us on a journey of jealousy, intimacy and self-confidence.
