Here is the video of Mischa’s stunning and inspiring speech at the Millennium Campus Conference where she also received the 2014 Global Generation Award. Mischa gave a really thoughtful and heartfelt speech about how filming Bhopal: A Prayer for Rain in India shaped her understanding of the importance of education for women.
It is a real shame that the media never grabs onto these things to create worthwhile headlines. Instead, we are consistently stuck with superficial nonsense.
Check out this recent video interview of Mischa chatting to Film Companion at the recent NY screening of Bhopal: A Prayer for Rain. Mischa talks about filming in India, her introduction to acting and how she ended up playing Marissa.
Check out out the trailer for Mischa’s upcoming feature film Starcrossed also starring Grant Harvey, Eric Roberts and Kristin Carey. The movie will have its premiere at the San Diego Film Festival in a few days.
Also, here is an excerpt from an interview talking about Mischa’s involvement with the film.
Casting was the first task. Reed had Barton in mind because of the English roots of both the character and the actress. Once Barton had “loved” the script and signed on, they auditioned a ton of young male leads in LA, trying to find the right fit and the right chemistry.
Reed said that when Harvey and Barton were in a room together it was instantly “electric,” and they knew they had found their leads.
Reed said he thinks the movie is the best performance Barton has ever done, and he believes that Harvey, best known for a role on the TV show “The Secret Life of the American Teenager,” is going to be a big star. Part of what makes their performances so good are Mohseni’s words, he said.
“What he wrote is so rich and so deep,” he said of the script, which he called darkly romantic, following two lost souls who make a connection over a matter of hours.
The film was shot over 16 days at the end of October 2013. Post-production work started in January, the beginning of a long march until just this week when all the details on the final cut were finished.

Check out the teaser trailer for Mischa’s upcoming role in L.A. Slasher. The trailer is really well done and makes the movie look like a lot of fun, can’t wait!
We are still currently awaiting details of a release date, but with distribution pretty much locked in, it shouldn’t be too far away. You can also read an excerpt from the press release below.
LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA (August 18, 2014) – A new trailer has been released for the up-and-coming film “L.A. Slasher,” directed by Martin Owen and produced by Jeffrey Wright and Daniel Sollinger (“Girls Against Boys”, “The Alphabet Killer”). The satire, which is making waves in social media, has also recently been picked up by Archstone Distribution to handle its international sales.
The film offers a tongue-in-cheek review of reality TV, and the undue admiration for people who are famous for simply being famous. In the feature, the L.A. Slasher publicly abducts a series of reality TV stars, while the media and general public in turn begin to question if society is better off without them. “L.A. Slasher” explores why it has become acceptable and even admirable for people to become influential and wealthy based on no merit or talent – purely through notoriety achieved through shameful behavior.
