Congrats to 'Umbrella,' Indiewire's Project of the Week!


Thanks to your votes, the drama “Umbrella” won this weekend’s Project of the Week contest!

Congratulations to “Umbrella” director Michael Smith. The filmmaker will receive a digital distribution consultation from SnagFilms and the film is now officially a candidate for Project of the Month. That winner will be awarded with a consultation from the Tribeca Film Institute.
Here’s what the project’s about:

We have all had to deal with forgiveness in our life. But what if you were a witness to a woman being attacked, and despite your best efforts in helping her, wound up having your leg amputated as a direct result of the melee?How about learning from the police that the woman you attempted to save was raped? How could you live with yourself?

What if your wife, unable to cope with the stress and pressure of the marriage, decided to take another man into your bedroom?

This is Alexander Way’s story.
