Our dear India Kotis is coming back from her first semester away at college and we’re thrilled to welcome her back. She’ll be reading the Cultural Calendar for us–Yippee! Join us this Sunday, October 25th at 11:30 am for EVOLUTION. Dixon Place, 161A Chrystie Street. Can’t wait to hug India.

Here’s her bio, with some editing by The Secret City:

  • Born in ’97. Moved to Brooklyn on New Years Day, 2000, and been there ever since. (Except she’s now in Chicago, attending Columbia College.)
  • I’ve been writing plays since 2011, and good plays since 2013. (She’s also a filmmaker.)
  • I have three thumbs (no really, I do.)
  • I graduated from LaGuardia High School (i.e. the “Fame” school) in their drama program.
  • I’m never not panicking about the environment.
  • I believed in Santa well into middle school.

We’re going to screen a short film this Sunday for our service on THE FOOL. And, it’s a short film by India Kotis, who describes herself as having three thumbs, a love for stories and a fascination with Family History. She’s also a really talented young filmmaker and a member of our community. India’s film is called Immigration to the Promised Land, and it won a Gold Key in Film at the Scholastic Awards this year. India, as well as the two leads in her film, Max Piersol and Lily Berman, attend LaGuardia High School of Performing Arts. Teresita Cuadrado, who plays Grandmother, does not attend LaGuardia High School. India’s film is loosely inspired by events in her own family.
