“Standing as a good example of the cinema of cruelty, FALL TIME is a stunning examination of loss of innocence in the 1950’s. It’s not a coming-of-age ode, but coming-of-age rumination.

"Warner's distanced and dryly funny compositions nicely spoof the false innocence of the age. -- The Hollywood Reporter

Directed by Paul Warner, Kaya is written by Jerome Parker and features music and lyrics by Anna Jacobs. Set prior to the dawn of the AIDS epidemic, the 25-minute film sheds light on New York City’s underground disco scene and the primarily LGBTQ youth, many of whom are homeless.
Kaya follows a first generation South African immigrant teenager living under the protective wing of her older brother (Onaodowan), who risks the safety of her strict cultural upbringing to find a place of her own in the nightlife scene and to ultimately transcend her past.
