Synopsis: A young woman battles a secret addiction.
My name is Octavia Luara Vaughn, I am an upcoming filmmaker and a Brooklyn native. Growing up, movies were an escape to a mental vacation. In the beginning, I worked my way up on set of the Foster Care Film series as a P.A. to an assistant producer. Within time, Along with my work on several other film projectss, I have obtained the experience and confidence to officially create my own art. Working at a non profit for over 8 years, I wanted my first film to be something heartfelt that would make a difference and bring awareness to a much needed cause. I hope that “KARA” achieves just that. Focusing on Alcoholism was huge for me. This disease is a silent killer and is something not discussed often enough.
