A&E & IDA Award Grant to "Gwen's Story: Crazy Like Me"

Feature doc production arm A&E IndieFilms and The International Documentary Association have announced the first A&E IndieFilms / IDA Documentary Finishing Grant to Affinity Films. The $25,000 grant will be used to complete its feature, “Gwen’s Story: Crazy Like Me.” The film, produced and directed by Mary Katzke, and produced by Deborah Schildt, is described as the story of, “an Alaskan woman who sustained third degree burns over her back, legs, arms, face and head, losing fingers, an ear and half her scalp after being thrown into a campfire by her own mother at the age of 10 months. Now 26, Gwen has embarked on a quest for answers.” For more information, visit the company’s website. [Eugene Hernandez]
