"From now on, forget happiness. Now it's just about saving the remains, the wreckage, the appearance." -Henrik Ibsen
Methodical, world-weary stagehands strike a set. Two women confront one another with conflicting memories of an old dress. By turns mysterious and shocking, the film's fragile narrative begins to unravel, and the women's relationship teeters closer to the edge of truth.
Loosely inspired by Ibsen's "A Doll's House'', SPIDER VEINS is a mercurial investigation into varying levels of everyday artifice.
Starring Katey Parker, Danielle Pickard, and Jennifer Mazza-Nguyen.

"One of the best short films of 2016. Features strong performances from Danielle Pickard and Katey Parker, and a well-executed 360 pan." -Kevin Rakestraw, FILM PULSE
"Mosley understands the variance between film and theater is that of ephemera versus permanence. To create a film that starts with a set being torn down acknowledges that distinction; Mosley is a metaphor maker with an interest in symbolism." -Lauren Smart, DALLAS OBSERVER
"Ominous. A smart meditation on acting." -Scott Macaulay, FILMMAKER MAGAZINE
