Emotionally disturbed children coexist in a cursed hospital in Chattanooga, Tennessee. 'They see the branches move but not the wind."
In the mid 80's in the South, there was a huge phenomenon of middle class white kids partaking in the culture surrounding satanic rites, devil worshiping and Aleister Crawley. The crown jewel in this type of debauchery in Chattanooga, TN was an abandoned hospital called Pine Breeze.
Pine Breeze began life in the early 1900's as a Tuberculosis hospital. People went there to die. As the century progressed, Pine Breeze took on more "incurables" such as the criminally insane. The legend is, that when the hospital first closed in the late 20's that some of the patients were left, chained to the floors and walls to die because there was no money and no one to care for them. When I heard the stories of kids who had visited the terrifying place, this project was born.
One of the things I wonder about the most is the legitimacy of any of the claims of supernatural forces at work there, of people really coming away cursed. My research has led me to lots of history and speculation about the hospital but formal medical records are all but gone.
However, in the 1960's the hospital re- opened for the purpose of treating emotionally disturbed children. One of the treatment options for the kids was participation in a project to create a series of museum quality recordings of the songs of all the nearby East TN mountain people. It worked. When this film is complete, these recordings will support the soundtrack.
I need funding to write this film, hire some people and begin production. Thanks in advance!
