My name is Ella Fairon and I am the director, producer, survivor advocate, and best friend of Daisy Coleman. This project is so much more and so much bigger than this initial documentary. This is the start of a huge conversation around healing and who better to prove that healing is possible rather than Daisy Coleman. Daisy and I were connected through the filming of Audrie and Daisy (the Netflix documentary), but have grown close over the years as we created SafeBAE, spread awareness  and advocate for survivors of sexual assault all over the world. The one thing you should know about Daisy is that she is not one to ask for help. Over the years and as long as i've known her, and even through the making of Audrie and Daisy and on she has not received ANY type of therapy.

Saving Daisy will pick up where the Netflix film “Audrie & Daisy” left off.  This documentary will follow Daisy Coleman’s journey of healing from lifelong trauma and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, through treatment using EMDR (eye movement desensitization reprocessing) Therapy.  

Millions of people from all over the world came to learn about Daisy’s sexual assault when her story went viral and was followed by a feature length documentary. But that was only the beginning of her journey as a survivor. With this film, Daisy has joined forces with a team of filmmakers and fellow survivors to follow her vulnerable PTSD recovery process, in an effort to inspire other survivors and their families in recovery. We will follow her through her EMDR treatment to unlock the layers of trauma from her assault, the tragic death of her father prior to the assault, as well as the recent sudden loss of her younger brother. Daisy has faced more trauma in her 21 years than anyone should ever be faced with in a lifetime, but this film will prove to survivors everywhere that healing is possible.

  The goal and objective of this project is to record the impact and measurable results of EMDR treatment on a rape survivor and use this research and findings to ultimately create a narrative feature film based on Daisy Coleman’s life and recovery through EMDR. In multiple research reports from 2015-2018, EMDR has shown the most long term and positive results in reducing PTSD trauma and triggers, specifically in rape survivors and trauma victims. Daisy has already attended a consultation session with her new EMDR specialist, Dr. Heather Westbarn and is ready/excited for the next phases of her treatment. One of the most important goals of this process is to get Daisy the treatment she needs and deserves, so that she can thrive and fulfill her highest potential. But Daisy being who she is, wants her journey to be able to help others as well, so the making of this short documentary will bring awareness to EMDR as a treatment tool for assault survivors and give them the hope and will to want to thrive too.This short documentary will become part of the learning tools offered by SafeBAE, the national organization that Daisy helped to found in 2015, which works to prevent sexual assault among teens.

Risks and challenges

Its already hard to talk about sexual assault, and no one even knows where to start when it comes to healing. Daisy is a female artist, hero, advocate whom we are lucky is being vulnerable enough to share this next part of her journey.
In addition the kick ass woman we have in this film are approaching the industry at a new angle. This is a pivotal moment for everyone involved, and we want you to be apart of this beautiful project. We are not just doing this for the sake of the film, we are also making this to spread awareness about this incredible therapy and prove to survivors that they can heal. This is also not the only thing under our belt, as mentioned above, in addition to this documentary we have a feature film in the process of being written with many celebrities attached based on Daisy's life and a tribute to Tristan Coleman. Hitting our goals for this project will not only heal Daisy but also ensure more projects around this issue in the near future.
