“Written and directed by Phyllis Toben Bancroft, ‘With Salt’ is a short drama film that delves into one woman’s sexual exploitation/abuse. Dominique Denny leads the cast as the demure protagonist Natalie, who finds herself in a troubling situation during a romantic date. Moe Irvin co-stars as Roger – the narrative antagonist – a charismatic bachelor who takes advantage of Natalie. Aside from the principal theme of abuse, the drama explores themes of friendship, jealousy and anxiety. ‘With Salt’ is an undeniably tough watch, albeit an important one.”
