Alli’s Newest Feature Film, Hurricane:
~ From this article
Film director Alli Haapasalo (On Thin Ice, The Girl Who Had No Problems) is filming her next project in New York this fall. The film is titled Hurricane, Brooklyn. It is a feel good comedy about the friendship of Preston and Elle – a Mormon missionary who comes to do his mission in New York and a poetry student joggling a double life as a professional dominatrix. The script was developed through a unique process: two years of group improvisations between the main actors and the director. Hurricane, Brooklyn is an independent production, currently in fundraising stages. New York Foundation for the Arts has selected the project in its fiscal sponshorship program making every donation fully tax deductible.
