Congrats to 'You Are Your Body / You Are Not Your Body,' Indiewire's Project of the Week!

Thanks to your votes, a story about a lonely comedienne and a family with a history of violence that become involved with the possible second coming, “You Are Your Body/ You Are Not Your Body,” won this weekend’s Project of the week contest!

Congratulations to “You Are Your Body/ You Are Not Your Body” and director Matt Latham. 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 the project is about:

The Evans family has never been happy. After a decade of estrangement, it takes the death of Dinah Evans to bring her four children back together. As old tensions threaten to destroy the calm that each sibling has struggled to maintain, salvation presents itself in an unlikely form: a mysterious woman who inspires unwavering devotion enters their lives, offering freedom from all pain.

But as her cult closes in on the siblings, the vacant eyes and plaster smiles of her followers beg the question: is freedom from suffering worth the cost?
