Rowen teamed up with his brother, actor and filmmaker Aidan Kahn, to make 'Marsha!' and it's a partnership they intend to continue for many films to come.
"Marsha!" is an exploration of the sibling dynamic that the filmmakers— Aidan and Rowen— luckily never had, but, under different circumstances, might have had. In truly meta fashion, "Marsha!" imagines the rapid deterioration of a brotherly working relationship where nothing actually, really happens to change the rapport itself, but where the relationship markedly shifts nonetheless, as deeper emotional layers are uncovered in a dark and somewhat ridiculous real-time depiction. As a director, I mainly set out to tell a funny story with my brother, Aidan, but we ended up making something a lot deeper and a bit darker than we originally intended, much like our caricatures do in the short themselves. We reckon we had more fun than the characters did, however. Enjoy!
