HBO to Air Lena Dunham's Short Film Starring Elisabeth Moss
HBO and Lena Dunham are teaming up again.
The premium cable network will air a short film from the Girls mastermind, Tokyo Project. The 30-minute film, which stars Elisabeth Moss and Ebon Moss-Bachrach (aka Desi from Girls), had its world premiere at the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival.
The film follows Moss-Bachrach's Sebastian on a business trip to Tokyo, where he's fascinated by a mystery woman he keeps running into (Moss' Claire). Through her and the city they explore, Sebastian discovers that the truth and past are as elusive as love.
Tokyo Project was written and helmed by Girls director Richard Shepard, who also produced the project alongside Stacey Reiss, co-producer Ericka Naegle and executive producers Dunham, Jenni Konner and Karen J. Lauder.
The short film will air Saturday, Oct. 14, at 10 p.m. on HBO.
