About the Film:
We’re creative storytellers that want to raise awareness about the deaf community and sleep paralysis. Getting a film funded where the female lead communicates in American Sign Language is a challenge. We’re trying to compete with other films on a large scale that have a certain level of quality that audiences expect. We’ve believed in this project since day one, there’s been uphill battles that have been overcome, people can see that and that’s why we have the support that we do. But to finish it, we need the recognition of a large platform like Indiewire.

Current Status: We launched a Kickstarter Friday, April 17th, and have already received over a quarter of the funds we need.
