It’s been a day since comedian Maeve Press wrapped up ‘Too Many Buddhas’ in Los Angeles and she already cannot stop talking about the intense learning experiences she has had during the shoot. The New York-based actress-writer, known for her portrayal of Genevieve in ‘Everything’s Gonna Be OK‘, plays an aspiring flutist who seeks help from a therapist after her music teacher dies. 

On the surface, it seems like a linear role to play but she describes it as something that taught her all about life and the many layers it comes with. “For me, Too Many Buddhas is about the search for understanding, of oneself and of others and the need to feel understood. It is about human beings grasping for connection, perhaps missing the mark, but not the humanity,” Press said in a media interaction.
