Description: Two people at a crossroads in life find inspiration in one another through a chance encounter, but who knew just just how much one night could change their lives.
Director Commentary: I am very proud of our cast, crew and the film that we all made together. The smartest thing I did on this project was to surround myself with dedicated artists who taught me so much along the way and made the final product better than I could have ever imagined.
One of my favorite parts of the process was recording the all original score with 18 incredible musicians. It’s one of the prettiest, most lush and emotional scores I’ve heard in a long time…and I can’t wait for everyone to hear it!
About Horizon Foundation Mental Health Film Festival
The Horizon Foundation’s Mental Health Film Festival is an event to build awareness and compassion for members of our community facing mental health challenges. The Foundation has hosted three film festivals drawing hundreds of people to watch films, discuss and reflect. Past events have featured documentaries highlighting issues such as U.S. veterans recovering from PTSD, youth anxiety, teen suicide and postpartum depression.
“Mental health challenges are not just a personal struggle; they are a larger public health concern,” said Horizon Foundation Senior Program Officer Tiffany Callender. “We are here because mental health shouldn’t be a hidden conversation in our community.”
