“To The Edge of the Sky” garnered the most votes for the May Project of the Month. The prize is a creative consultation from our Project of the Month partner, Tribeca Film Institute. “The Devil on Wheels” will also be in the running for 2015 Project of the Year.
Take a look at the film’s pitch, courtesy of the filmmakers: “To The Edge of the Sky” is a documentary about parents fighting to stop Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy before it kills their sons. New drugs are on the horizon to treat this deadly disease, but they are stalled at the FDA. With access to the families, legislators, and FDA, we present the daily strategizing required to get the government and public to pay attention to Duchenne. We depict the tireless battles that parents fight to protect their kids. These parents will do anything to save their sons. They’ll go to the ends of the earth, to the edge of the sky.
