Mrs. Booker on 8th Avenue is a modern tragedy, exploring the complexity of relationships and the consequences of choices. It follows Florence Booker [Daniella Alma], who feels increasingly isolated in her marriage to Louis [David Edwin Williams], a successful financier in New York. A shared cigarette with an alluring line cook named Roy [Nicholas Baroudi], sparks an affair that causes the different layers of Florence’s life to unravel.

Earlier this summer, the film was awarded Best ‘Reel Life’ Film by the Chattanooga Film Festival: “Shot on the streets over New York in just ten days, Canepa’s talented cast bear their souls and the result is a beautiful and tragic tale that couldn’t help remind us of Cassavettes at his peak.”  – Chattanooga Film Festival, 2023
