The prestigious Tribeca Film Festival has always been a platform for groundbreaking films and emerging talent.
This year, one film that has captivated audiences is «The Secret Art of Human Flight,» where Marisa Milroy was a co-executive producer. Marisa is one of the non-Latino creatives that is highly involved in Latin projects, that is why she is making her mark in our community.
«The Secret Art of Human Flight» revolves around a man who has lost his spouse and, overcome by grief, seeks solace in an enigmatic guidebook found on the hidden corners of the internet. This peculiar book offers a path towards discovering the ability to soar through the air. With its intriguing premise and stellar cast, the film has generated significant buzz and anticipation among movie enthusiasts.
The journey of bringing «The Secret Art of Human Flight» to life was an exhilarating one. Marisa Milroy was brought on board just a week before production began in Massachusetts. Despite the time constraints and the challenges of stepping into the project at such a critical stage, Marisa’s dedication and passion shone through. Flying in from Canada, she quickly became an integral part of the team, seamlessly contributing her expertise and creative vision.
The collaborative atmosphere on set fostered a sense of family among the team members, resulting in joyful and memorable days of filming.
The film features an exceptional cast including Paul Raci, remembered by everyone for his role in “Sound of Metal”, which earned him a nomination for Best Supporting Actor from The Academy. Other well-known actors who star in it are Grant Rosenmeyer (“The Royal Tenenbaums”, “Money Monster”), Nican Robinson (“Thunder Road”, “13 Reasons Why”), Lucy Devito (“Little Demon”), and Maggie Grace (“Taken”, “Fear the Walking Dead”).
The Tribeca film festival, founded by Rosenthal, Robert De Niro, and Craig Hatkoff, hosts each year approximately 150,000 attendees, and awards independent artists in 23 juried competitive categories.
This year Marisa Milroy is having a number of successful projects. She also placed as a quarter finalist in the Outstanding Screenplays Feature Competition with her latest LGBTQ+ script she wrote called “What Did I Do”. Milroy is producing a queer comedy short film, and is developing a Latin TV show called “Mija” that we are sure is going to see the same or even more success than the rest of the projects Marisa creates.
