My fascination with all aspects of the entertainment industry has also led me to play the role of screenwriter, director and producer. I have penned numerous screenplays, directed an award-winning documentary and am currently producing three different projects that celebrate some of the industry's most influential personalities.
I am always on the lookout for more!
Towards the Moon
In the early 80s, I went on an ethereal adventure with the great Italian filmmaker Federico Fellini. What we experienced together over the course of a week in Los Angeles and the jungles of Tulum (and over the next several years) led to a quest to seek out answers to the most universal questions...including whether or not we are alone. Our journey together formed a strong bond between us that continued until his passing. During that time, I was privileged to get an inside look at "il Maestro" and his process for making his final film La Voce Della Luna. The result was my award-winning documentary Towards the Moon With Fellini, which had great success on the festival circuit.
In August of 2019, I published my debut book, also titled Towards the Moon With Fellini, which explores our adventure together and the strange but inspiring circumstances that surrounded Fellini's last great ethereal adventure! I have an entire other website dedicated to this project and my time with Fellini. To learn more about the documentary, the book and the story that legendary astronaut Buzz Aldrin called a "star-filled idea," check out:
Towards Manhattan with Woody
The Devil Made Me Do It
Towards Manhattan with Woody is a prequel of sorts to Christina’s debut memoir Towards the Moon with Fellini. This follow up work is much more intimate and personal, shedding light on what some would call a scandalous relationship with controversial director Woody Allen and how that pairing, which came along in a dangerous but exciting time for Christina, had a ripple effect that would impact the course of her life all the way up to today.
The untold story of comic genius Flip Wilson.
At the height of his career, beloved comedian Flip Wilson believed comedy should be color blind for everyone. He was more than a funny African American who went from rags to riches; he was a spiritual man that lived amidst segregation and racism. Through his comedy, he found ways his gifts could reach others. But as all sins die slowly, Flip’s greatest battle until the end was with his own inner demons...
The rights to Flip's life story are secured and the script is written. Currently negotiating financing and securing investors.

The project is currently in production.
Towards Hollywood with christina
Higher and Higher
In Towards Hollywood with Christina, a woman opens up about the most volatile part of her journey, a wild adventure into the decadence of Hollywood with A-list celebrities and a lost soul unsure of what she’s hoping to find. Still in development, this book is the ultimate self-examination of a woman realizing that her life doesn’t need to be shaped by the men around her, but rather by her own calling, her own spirit, her own power.
A look at the career of "Mr. Excitement" Jackie Wilson.
