A short film about one man's attempt to free himself from the prison of Alzheimers disease.
We are filmmakers who have made multiple films together. We love this story and can't wait to share it with all of you. We need your help to ensure that we are able to provide our production with the necessary equipment to give this story the look it deserves. We will be using the money for professional camera, lighting, and sound equipment, as well as our submission fees to various film festivals.
Our story is about Handel, an older gentleman whose memory has been eaten away over the past few years by Alzheimers disease. He wakes up each morning believing that he and his wife are preparing for their next journey to Antarctica. Unfortunately, as Handel has to learn every day, his traveling days are long over and his wife has long since passed away. This is a story about Handel's decision to escape the truths of his current life and chase after a younger version of himself.
