“The Funeral Dancer” tells the story of “Jazz”, who works as a funeral entertainer which has become one of the best paid jobs in a world, where funerals are a status symbol and at the same time an obligation to entertain relatives, friends and work colleagues alike. Expectations are high, morals are low. While Jazz tries to entertain the mourners, she is forced to face severe problems of her own.

This is not a love story, but it is a story about love. It is an anti-love story, about a society, where love has become a crime and Esperanto a forbidden language, only used by those who don’t follow the rules despite all consequences.

REVIEW of the film (By “Largo Film Awards”):
The plot is an elliptical day-to-day of a “call center” type of business, one that acts as a hotline service for women who feel stalked or in danger while walking alone at night. Simultaneously, one employee spends his downtime in a virtual reality simulation.
The film spirals toward its feverish nightclub conclusion, in which the protagonist’s infatuation with the girl from the simulation bleeds into reality, where the man who is supposed to be acting as a barrier for predators in fact becomes the predator himself. Intercut with scenes of him at work in finding the client’s location, this conclusion serves as a final testament to the film’s power. It confronts the issue of sexual harassment/predation in a distanced, almost clinical, way. Decent acting, cinematography, and an engaging electronic score aside, it is ultimately the directing that makes “The Redhead” successful in what it sets out to do.
MacMahon’s film is an effective study of obsessive attraction due to its technical artistry, presenting its story in a way that avoids conventionality from the start.
Natalie’s very first shortfilm “The Man Who Couldn’t Cry” is now on the number one streaming platform for independent films “Realeyz”!
