There’s one brief moment where she escapes outside for a respite, and it’s glorious! Since graduating NYU Tisch for Film & TV Production, Toryn has worked on projects for Def Jam and collaborated with up and coming artists within the music and film world.

Not only did Seligman have to find actors willing to work on a tiny budget, they also had to feel authentic to the material. All in all, “Shiva Baby” is a savagely smart comedy that dives deep into excruciating embarrassment. Making the occasion especially awkward for Danielle is the presence at the shiva of her overachieving, law-school-bound ex, Maya (played with great sarcastic charisma by Booksmart's Molly Gordon). “Like, Dianna Agron is Jewish in real life but she plays the WASP-iest character [in the film]. Emma Seligman’s debut feature, which screened at the, Rachel Sennot plays Danielle, a senior at NYU who moonlights as a sugar baby. It means so much to me to see this story grow into a feature and continue to be supported by SXSW.
