MY OWN PRIVATE RIVER PHOENIX
Created by Ai Yoshihara
How far would you go to meet your celebrity crush? What if he was dead? Ai wanted to move to America because she wanted to marry her crush, River Phoenix. Unfortunately he died before she even made it across the Pacific. However, Ai was determined to find her own River Phoenix. She convinced her strict Japanese father to allow her to move, and he made her promise three things: No religion, No gun, No drugs.
Created by Lynda La Rose
A young girl in Midtown L.A. ripening into a woman through various summers of her life told in the language of poetry/spoken word. She looks for love in family, her neighborhood, food, men, sexuality, the muse and apricots—can she find what she’s seeking or will it be a fruitless journey?
