The Family of Mann

In the Southern Sahara, lions slowly stalk their prey, then make a rushing leap, going for the throat or suffocating the animal by by clamping jaws over its mouth and nose. Lionesses most often make the kills, but males tend to show dominance. In Southern California, behind the scenes of a major TV studio, the lines between hunter and prey are blurred as all parties stand poised to rip each other to shreds. A young writer, Belinda, joins the cutthroat production team behind the hit sitcom, “The Family of Mann”. As she struggles for survival among the males of the species, she must decide which behaviors are the natural way and which are downright primitive. Starring Matt Connolly ’09, Jessica Posner ’09, Daphne Schmon ’09 and Ben Smolen ’10. Directed by Marguerite Weisman ’09.
