She may not have “BADASS” tattooed on her forehead, but the moniker is well-deserved.
For one thing, her third feature, “Erasing Eden,” (starring Breeda Wool) has garnered acclaim on the festival circuit for its raw honesty and its willingness to allow a female protagonist to be both hero and villain. For another, Beth Dewey's a three-time Emmy Award nominee as editor of the Oscars telecast.
Called “moody” and “lyrical” by the LA Times, “Erasing Eden” turns damsel in distress tropes on their ear. Breeda Wool (UnREAL, The Betas) stars as Eden, a young woman who plunges her life into chaos by drinking herself into a blackout the night before her wedding. When day breaks, she’s far from home and must face the ultimate soul-searching. In the course of one of the most harrowing wedding days in cinematic history, Eden does not speak – yet her voice is heard using a creative story telling device.
The indie feature premiered at the 14th Annual Female Eye Film Festival (FeFF) to rave reviews. Toronto Film Scene’s Andrew Parker called it, “a unique and emotion character drama that doesn’t pull any punches…dark and unforgiving.” It screened before a packed house at the Downtown LA Film Festival, was an official selection at the Tallgrass Film Festival and the LA Femme International Film Festival.
After attending the University of Colorado, Boulder and San Francisco State University, Beth continued her cinematic education working for Roger Corman on B-movies. Her first feature, Tweeked, won Best Actress at the Brussels Independent Film Festival and was nominated for a Prism award. Widening her expertise, Beth also directed the web series Shadowlands and the comedy series Living the Dream.
