synopsis
Erstwhile is the story of four sisters and the last night they spend together before the eldest goes to college. Part coming of age, and family portrait, Erstwhile sheds a little moonlight on the youthfulness and spontaneity of sisterhood, exploring what happens when that world is threatened and how those involved cope with the inevitable changes.

director
Beatrice Copeland is an independent filmmaker living and working both in LA and NYC. Since graduating Elon University (May 2011), she worked on Sony’s ANNIE (release December 2014), on the UNTITLED TINA FEY/ROBERT CARLOCK PILOT (NBC 2014), as a director's assistant at the award-winning production company Tool of North America, on the indie SHORT TERM 12 (SXSW Grand Jury and Audience Award) and at Gersh, a premiere lit and talent agency. Her most recent independent credits include directing the branded video campaign for Mott & Bow, a NY-based denim company, directing GO!, a music and dance collaboration with members of Your Neighborhood Dance Studio in Los Angeles, and ECHOES OF LIGHT, a laser light and video project produced by Tool of North America. As a college senior, Beatrice was also selected as one of six filmmakers nationwide to produce a sponsored short film for Coca-Cola’s Sprite Refreshing Filmmakers.

filmmaker's note
I've found many definitions of the Old English word "erstwhile", my favorite being "at a time, for a time". It's true, young sisterhood can only exist for a short while. This time, for me, was spent passionately, spontaneously and without worry or even regard for the future.
