291 The Movie

A Short Film by Steve Zeifman

Modern art meets the Harlem renaissance at 291 Fifth Avenue where Georgia O'Keeffe, who is looking for Mr. Stieglitz, encounters the unexpected. Set in 1916 in New York City, O'Keeffe meets Hodge Kirnon, originally from the West Indies and now weary from many years of navigating the "American Dream." Georgia finds much in common with this stranger as she deals with her own insecurities about being an artist and a woman in a man's world.

The short is now in post-production and will be completed by the end of the year, ready for film festivals and to accompany the feature script in our quest to make the feature, 291.
