This time Cerar plays a behind-the-scenes role as the screenwriter of “STEPS,” a three-minute short film that features a young girl, abandoned as an infant, and her reflections about life. Cerar’s film is one of 10 produced as part of Project: Involve, a program that enrolls filmmakers from culturally diverse backgrounds in nine-month fellowships.
You can watch “STEPS” and other films, and vote for your favorites in a competition sponsored by Vanity Fair and Banana Republic. Check it out at www.vfagenda.com/ bananarepublic by Sept. 4.
Cerar, who now lives in Los Angeles, says her inspiration came from being adopted herself: “The film is about those moments that forever change our lives and bring people together, people who otherwise may have never met.”
