A film based on a true story about a woman named Lani

We're highlighting the emotional, scary, real parts of her story so her struggles and victories don't fade away like so many do. Many families feel like their loved one's stories are slipping through their fingers--confused about how to capture a meaningful representation of how they feel. 

Imagine being able to see a film of your great-great grandmother you've never met. It's not just a slideshow but a very well-made film. You see her telling the story. You hear her voice. You're able to emotionally connect to her, and it's engaging enough to actually sit through the whole thing. You feel like you actually connected with someone you won't ever met in this life, but still your sense of belonging to your family and ancestry explodes. That's the vision we have. Someone needs to start making these films happen.

There are so many films on the "big screen" about fictional characters, in a fictional world, leaving us without much "real" material to bring into our own lives. We want to add our voices to the fight for light, by pushing for more real and honest content focused on REAL PEOPLE whose relatable stories can inspire your own. And you're getting their story first-hand, from their own mouth.

We want to show what's possible when it comes to capturing the stories of those closest to us with this film about Lani. iPhone videos and scattered emails aren't enough to carry on your loved one's legacy to future generations. But a well-made film CAN. Please consider donating your means to our team - we're hoping to make more films like this one :)

Risks and challenges

We have no idea how many people will respond positively to this so we're going to be just as surprised as you are. We have a good team working on this project so we're confident we'll be able to meet all the rewards deadlines, but as always, there's things that come up we can't plan for and we'll make sure to be completely clear and honest if that happens.
