The Story of Hers

Prague born actress and film-maker Laura Arten has a short film in the official selection of Bootleg Film Festival NYC. The film will screen at 6:45pm on Saturday, the 21st Sept, in the TriBeCa Film Center.

Laura was born in Prague but lived in London since high school. She graduated from University of The Arts London with a 1st Class Degree in Film Studies. She then went on to work freelance in film production as well as pursuing acting. She had the pleasure to work with Old Vic New Voices and Almedia Theatre on ongoing basis. She is also a trained aerialist and obtained scholarship to the WAC Arts College to study aerial theatre with The Scarabeus Theatre. 

In summer 2013 Laura relocated to NYC, to study at the prestigious TICH, Drama and Strasberg Acting Institute. She intends to remain in the USA and pursue career in film further. She recently appeared in the play ‘Manny’s Last Stand’ in the Guildhall Theatre, NYC.

The Story Of Hers is a short film based on a true encounter, which accidentally took place in London between Laura and a girl of the same age, who is called simply ‘A’. At the time Laura was finishing film school and ‘A’ was a high class escort. The film is based on an open conversation the two young women had.

The film premiered in Cannes, Court Metrage, in 2013 and so far has also been in the official selection of Brooklyn Shorts Film Festival and Bootleg Film Festival.  

Synopsis: ‘A’ is a mysterious young woman living in one of the world’s metropoles. As she wakes up and gets ready for the night ahead, we witness her innermost thoughts and reminiscence on life.
