The Woman Without a Face follows our main character, Allison, as she struggles with the idea that another woman is trying to take over her life.

Inspired by films like Repulsion, Rosemary's Baby, and The Innocents, The Woman Without a Face deals with questions about what it is to be a woman as Allison slowly loses her grip on what is happening to her. The film blends modern elements of the horror genre with an observational style seen from directors like Lucrecia Martel and Roman Polanski, all culminating in a unique and unsettling experience. 

The Woman Without a Face is primarily funded by a grant from Studio 22, but that money only covers a portion of production costs. In order to ensure that we have enough money for insurance, rentals, and post-production, we need your support!

Risks and challenges

Principle photography for The Woman Without a Face is already completed, so the biggest hurdle has already been overcome! From here on out, it's all just about making sure we have enough money to finish out post-production and produce the best movie possible.

Our director has already produced four horror shorts during his time at Northwestern. His experience with and love for the horror genre have prepared him for the challenges that come with creating such an ambitious project.
