FAQ

How do I buy tix & watch this show?
The page you’re on right now is your one-stop-shop for buying tix and watching the show when it premieres! To buy, just click the red “WATCH” button above.

CAITLYN JOHNSON (CJ)is an award-winning director-producer and is currently an MFA candidate at NYU’s Kanbar Film Institute. CJ’s work is rooted in providing outlets for marginalized and underserved communities to produce their own stories through independent filmmaking. Her background includes cinematography, editing, development, documentary and film festival programming concentrated in interdisciplinary and radical storytelling. In 2018, CJ co-created and directed the highly acclaimed web series Seeds (OTV), which follows four Black young women while navigating relationships, politics and sex through their friendship and conversation. CJ also directed OTV’s THOTless pilot that further interrogates those same themes as they pertain to queer and marginalized identities. As her first year at NYU concludes, CJ has continued this tradition of radical storytelling as it pertains to the varying Black experiences in the US.
