The completed film will premiere next week Wednesday, June 13, at NYU Cantor Film Center, 7pm (tickets HERE), as part of a retrospective of Rod's work, which will feature the premiere of Soft Focus, a roughly 25-minute film that stars Damion Omar Lee, Angela Lewis, Madeleine Dauzart, and introducing Aaron Clifton Moten (currently appearing in the hit Broadway play, A Streetcar Named Desire).

Selected as the 2nd Shadow And Act Filmmaker Script Challenge Winner in 2011, Soft Focus is a portrait of Marcus
