Film and the art of cinema is Desi's other great passion. She has appeared in numerous short films including "THE INTRUDER" which was an official selection at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival Awards and "LAMENTABLES"- a short she produced, wrote and starred in, which was selected at the LA Femme Film Festival and the LA International Film Festival of Cinematic Arts.
In 2013 she made her feature film debut in the horror "THE BELL WITCH HAUNTING".
Later that year she co-starred in three other independent features: the quirky comedy "KIDNEY AND APPLE", the romantic drama "LITTLE YELLOW BIRD" and the thriller "EMMA'", which she co-wrote with director Vlad Feier.
She is also the co-producer, co-writer and actress of the comedy web-seriess "IT'S TEMPORARY" which received an award of merit at the 2013 Accolade Competition and was an official selection of the 2014 LA WEB SERIES FESTIVAL and the 2013 NEXT TV web-series competition.
