About this project

A 30 year old novelist has just been notified that she's receiving a prestigious award for her work. She travels home in hopes that her mother, who she has been estranged from for ten years, will attend the ceremony. The film focuses on the three days they spend together in the house, as the mother has become a recluse as a result of the estrangement. The visit is ridden with arguments and failed attempts at reconnecting.

Starring Liz Daingerfield as Sloane, Carol Stanzione as the Mother, Stephanie Taylor as Aunt Ayda, and Shashoni Walton as Jules.

Produced by Chelsea Hill, Dana Salvatore, and Cecilia Pérez-Homar

Written, Directed, and Edited by Cecilia Pérez-Homar

The funds donated will primarily cover set design, the team's transportation from Manhattan into New Jersey and food during production as well.

WE HAVE NOW REACHED OUR GOAL BUT THERE IS NO MAXIMUM TO HOW MUCH WE CAN RAISE! 


The more money we accrue, the smoother an experience it shall be for everyone. Whatever the raised amount does not cover will be paid out of pocket by the director.


Thank you very much and we do hope you join us in this exciting new venture!

Best,
C.
