"Revision"

Tweetable Logline:


Find the benefits in forgetting family.
 

Elevator Pitch:

When a New York based writer wakes from a coma, he realizes his memory gone as well as the context for every one of his relationships. But, he and his grandmother's broken relationship begins to mend when she's diagnosed with alzheimer's. These two family members finds a new dialogue in the absence of history.
 

Production Team:

Writer & Director - Garrett Johnston

Producer - Ryan Decker

Cinematographer - Pat Scola

Production Designer - Jen Dunlap

James (Lead) - Nathaniel Ryan

Estelle - Flossie Bennet

About the Production:

"Family and memory are at the core of this story, but neither of those motivated me to put the pen to the page. I was pulled in by the idea of starting a new dialogue in an old relationship. The divide between estranged family members runs deep. I have relatives going on 25 years of silence. James and Estelle spent the better part of their lives together, only to end up with a broken mess. But, when their history was erased, a new dialogue began. This begs the question, what happens when we hit the reset button." --Garrett Johnston
