Retraction is the story of a grieving father who discovers he has erased his daughter's existence from everyone's memory, including his wife's. He struggles to find out what tore his family apart, and whether or not attempting to restore what he lost is worth the consequences.

Students of both the Maryland Institute College of Art and Johns Hopkins University are spearheading every aspect of this project, from production design and casting to editing and direction. We are very passionate about seeing this project through, not only for ourselves but for you, our future audience.

Your donations will assist us with:

  • Gear Rental
  • Transportation
  • Craft Services
  • Distribution and Promotion
  • Props and Production Design

-The Crew of Retraction; David Ruby, Kathryn Alsman, Kristen Politis, Rebekah Levy, Chris Rhodes, and Reed Ratynski

Risks and challenges

Our largest challenge is time. As this is a student production we are always working against the clock to achieve the highest standard of filmmaking. We are very devoted to making this project become a reality no matter what our time constraints will be.
