We are already through with filming and editing and now we are short of $500 to finish doing voice overs and sounds. Having sponsored the whole project by ourselves, right now we are out of financing and got stuck nearly about the finish.

Why telling this story? Director's Statement 

I dare suppose everyone has thought about what lies ahead for us in the afterlife. To me, our souls will live on, no doubt. But what I kept wondering about was if we would be able to meet and recognize souls of people we once knew. And if so, would we see them as we used to see them in our physical embodiment or would they be just some sort of energy that we would be able to recognize.  

When I was 11 my parents divorced and I had to adjust to a totally new life and overcome a great number of hazards and problems. I'm not going to go into details about my family problems which were basically the major ones, however, I found myself in the surroundings of the abundant heroine wave which had absorbed almost every single friend I grew up with. Basketball was the only way of keeping myself off the negative lifestyle. I'm proud to admit I have never been neither drunk nor high in my life and I don't have that experience which is a blessing to me. Given the mention of it, I showed the drug and alcohol issue in the film as well. Can I Recognize Your Soul is a semi biopic film. People who know me can easily recognize me in the character of Alonzo. He is a streetball player, which is my biggest passion and to which I dedicated 20 years of my life, is a rapper, which many people know me by. He has got very negative views on alcohol and drugs, which I do, too. However, getting back to the main idea of the film. After having dealt with those problems in my teen years I became sort of a hermit. There was so much for me to think about, from routine to much bigger things, such as the afterlife. I didn't want anyone to interfere in my thinking process so I would stay away from people. One day I was playing basketball when a girl stepped on the court and asked to join me. As I found out she had used to be a basketball player but after being injured she had to give up on it and played only from time to time for fun. We started seeing each other, playing ball and so. We never managed to develop our relationship in those of between man and woman but it definitely influenced me to write a movie script. When I first did in in 2007 it was only a 5-page long joint. And in time I developed it to a feature movie.  
I do hope that regardless of your age and interests you will be able to relate to the movie in some way and find something positive and useful in it!
