Silhouettes is a love story that unfolds over a series of conversations, in the spirit of “Before Sunset” and “Lost in Translation”. Aamod is a retired executive who lives alone in his sprawling downtown Chicago apartment; Nadia is a successful lawyer in transit to see her conservative Muslim parents for the first time in more than a decade. Both are nursing their own traumas of loss and banishment. After a chance meeting, they are drawn together for a magical day in Chicago, wandering its loneliest spaces and its most haunting views, probing their experiences as globalized minorities caught between worlds, languages and cultures. When you feel different, home is finding another outlier. What emerges through words is a tragic secret and the reality of their feelings for each other. Silhouettes is a new chapter in the American love story -- unusual because it confronts issues of race, identity and culture head on, with a view to representing ethnic characters in the full breadth of their complexity and experience.
We know that $50,000 is a lot of money. Know that every penny we raise
will be used to pay off the loans that we incurred during our
production and to reimburse our valued vendors who worked on a
deferred payment for all of those weeks of shooting. We could not have done all this without them. This funding will also allow us to go into post
production and to support the editing, color correction, music
scoring and recording, sound design and final output of the film. We appreciate you supporting us at any level that you're able. Every penny helps.
