About the Film:

Making a film about someone’s life, even a short period of that life, is not something to enter into lightly, for filmmaker or subject. It is a bond that has to hold for a very long time before fruition, and a lifetime afterwards.

Rachel Flowers’ given abilities and the music that is her inspiration make her a talent that cannot be ignored. Everyone on our team believes that she is fully deserving of the imaginative and insightful film we’ve made about her, a dynamic, engaging portrait of where she is right now and the amazing future stretching out before her.

Current Status: Film completed and in festival release. Theatrical & ancillary release sought for Spring 2017.
