Short Film: WORKWEAR, 5min., USA, Drama

A corporate consultant by day and a drag queen by night, Jebreel’s worlds collide as he prepares for a show and must answer to his demanding boss. A Columbia University short film.

Director Biography – Emily Everhard

Emily began her career as a child actor at 9 years old. Emily graduated Magna Cum Laude from Dartmouth College and is in her second year at Columbia University’s MFA program in writing/directing. Before graduate school, Emily worked as an Associate Producer for documentary films.

Director Statement
“Workwear” is about the collapse of our public and private lives during the Covid-19 pandemic. Inspired by Jebreel’s personal experiences, I wanted to explore how gender performance influences work and pleasure – and what happens when we can no longer neatly separate these different aspects of our day-to-day lives.
