At a 40 year High School reunion, two attendees must face the consequences of a painful breakup from long ago.


Director Statement

As a first time director, I am proud of the female leadership on the semi-autobiographical film (written by Al Julian), the diverse cast and crew (in ethnicity and age - many "second-acters"), and the fact that the film weaves in a storyline that includes a wheelchair user.


In addition to being a filmmaker, I am an educator/speech-language pathologist who has worked with marginalized populations in Los Angeles, Chicago, Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Texas, so working on films that include people of diverse color, ethnic, gender, or sexual identity, religion, or abilities is important to me. It was serendipitous that we found actress Amanda Marie as her journey was very similar to the character of Adele.


Director Biography - Laura Galt

Laura has extensive experience in the world of film and theater. She is a Drama Desk Winner and Tony Nominated producer of the recent Broadway hit musical THE PROM. As an indie film producer, actor, dancer, director, casting director, assistant director, and educator/teaching artist, she brings a wealth of talent and professionalism to THE REUNION, from both behind and in front of the camera.


As a devoted member of the Austin entertainment community for years, Laura has served as a Conference Advisory Board Member for SXSW, was Education Committee/Youth Outreach Chair for the Lake Travis Film Festival, and Film Liaison for Austin Film Festival. She has served on Zach Theatre's Education Board and continues to be involved as a teaching artist and judge for Young Playwrights for Change, a national middle-school playwriting competition run by the American Alliance for Theatre and Education in collaboration with Zach Theatre. Young Playwrights for Change has a goal to produce meaningful conversations that will ripple across our nation to provoke change by sparking conversations and discussion throughout classrooms, schools, and communities.


Laura was extras casting coordinator on the Austin-based full-length film, FRIDAY’S CHILD, starring Tye Sheridan of X-Men and Ready Player One, and she co-conceptualized/produced SXSW panels, "Hollywood to Broadway: Adapting Films for Stage," and "Film and Music: Collaborating on Broadway."


In the deeper background, Laura worked in Los Angeles at International Creative Management, as an associate publicist for Nancy Seltzer Public Relations, and was a part of the publicity team for Julia Roberts, Nicole Kidman, Kathy Bates, Rob Reiner, and for Jonathan Demme's acclaimed film PHILADELPHIA. She also worked for Burt Reynolds Productions and was the personal assistant to Julian Louis Dreyfus.
