What:   Refraction (ugly working title) is a 16mm short about Norma-- an elderly woman with Myopiastalgia: a sudden form of near-sightedness, and a bit of suppressed nostalgia.  Norma goes to a specialist to help her condition, where she is faced with long lost images of her past.  Does Norma accept the help she needs, or does she decide that it's better to forget?

Refraction is a student production of NYU's Tisch School of the Arts.

Who: Starring Susan Kirby as Norma & Lodric Collins as the Optometrist

Where:  Filming on location and in-studio-- Manhattan & Brooklyn, NY

When: THIS MONTH!

All proceeds will go immediately to 16mm film stock, feeding cast and crew, as well as providing props, wardrobe, and transportation to make this shoot a reality.

No donation is too humble or too generous.  Thanks so much!
