Kaya stars in award-winning film

Congratulations to Year 9 student Kaya, who stars in a new short film, written, directed and produced by Matthias Salzburger.

The film has been selected to be screened at the HBO sponsored 30th Annual NewFest LGBT Film Festival in New York City on 27 and 28 of October. It also won Best Film and Best Director at the Mediteranea Film Festival, during the summer. 

The film follows the story of a female boxer, who is forced to fight for her name, her identity, and what is most important for her: the relationship with her daughter. This is Kaya's first film role.
