Comedian and author (and BUST contributor!) Sara Benincasa has just released her first-ever short film, and it’s f*cking hilarious. Directed by Heather Fink and produced by Roxane Gay, the film, titled “The Focus Group,” stars Sara herself as a depressed, unemployed woman with a love for egg rolls who submits her body to a focus group that promises to “improve her personal brand.” It’s 9 minutes and 30 seconds of snort-worthy laughs that had me choking on my coffee.

An excessively queer Aquarius with a LOT of opinions. Things I'm passionate about include, but are not limited to: writing (duh), my pet bunnies/animals in general, LGBTQIA+ issues, Sleater-Kinney, massive helpings of spaghetti, RuPaul's Drag Race, tacky horror movies, never shutting up about astrology/how gay I am, et cetera.
