Letter From an Unknown Woman
A woman’s enduring devotion to a famous architect she met as a child comes to define her life and passions. The story unfolds through three encounters between them at different periods of the woman’s life, and portrays the changing nature of her love given the devastating fact that each time they meet, he fails to remember her.
Beyond the Pale
In medieval Ireland, a girl plagued by disturbing visions lives in disguise as the ward of a devout ex-soldier, who believes her ability is sent from God. The pair are enlisted as travel escorts by a magnetic young nun, but it soon becomes clear that the nun’s true interest lies in the prophetic young girl, and their growing connection becomes an all-consuming threat to their lives and souls.

Bio: Frankie’s body of work focuses on dark representations of the cross section of love and obsession centered around the queer, female experience. Her work almost always is influenced by whichever art historical movement she is currently obsessing over, whether it’s the illuminated manuscripts of Medieval Ireland or the avant-garde painting of pre-revolutionary Russia. At the end of the day, she is deeply moved by the act of building personal monuments to the things you’re devoted to.
Frankie earned her BA in Media Studies and Film Production at the New School, where she also received the grand prize for her original drama pilot, Brigantine. At UCLA, her original drama pilot La Peste was a finalist in the 2021 Screenwriter’s Showcase.
