Congratulations to “Canary in a Coal Mine” director Jennifer Brea! The project received the most votes to win November’s Project of the Month. The prize is a creative consultation and Tribeca Film Institute.
Here’s a look at the film’s pitch:
Canary In A Coal Mine is the story of one of the worlds most prevalent, devastating, and misunderstood diseases. It follows Jennifer as she documents her own story and the stories of several extraordinary individuals struggling to find their way, fight, accept and sometimes even thrive in spite of “an illness that has no end”. At its heart, the film asks: what does this illness signify about the world we live in and what do we all risk by ignoring the voices of the sick and the profoundly invisible? What could we all learn by paying attention to those voices?
