But first, the actress is trying her hand at acting and directing with BREAKING IN, a topical new narrative short film that's debuting at the Brooklyn Girl Film Festival in New York City Saturday, March 28.
I only heard about this project earlier today on Twitter when the actress tweeted the following:
Excited! "breaking in", a short film i directed+wrote, will screen this wknd @ the Brooklyn Girl Film Festival. http://t.co/JNsbjJwaOU

From the festival website, I was able to gather this very brief synopsis:
One afternoon in Sunset Park, another black boy gets broken in by the NYPD.
So it sounds like the film explores the socio-political narrative of racial profiling and the police that has become a hot-button topic of conversation among millenials and political experts alike. I'm looking forward to it.
I'll keep you updated on this project as I learn more.
