About

The Enye (ñ) Experience is a film about what it’s like growing up in America having to navigate through two sets of cultural waters and figure out how they work together and as one. It’s a film that candidly shares what it’s like to grow up in the “in between” - this is the place we call “ñ.”

Just bringing up this topic “ni de aquí, ni de allá” alone is often enough to spark rich conversations and storytelling that have the power to connect people in such a deep way.

I know that people want to share their stories. They want to be known and accepted for who they are. This film accelerates that process and jumpstarts those conversations.

Background: I brought this project to my Producing partner Henry Ansbacher almost 4 years ago. He’s a veteran filmmaker with several Emmy’s and a recent Oscar nomination. He immediately saw the universal appeal in this message and the need for it in the world.

I’m a first time Latina filmmaker with a crazy work ethic and a track record of success as an entrepreneur and speaker.

Together, we’ve created a 37 minute film that has and will transform lives.

Up to now we have been almost completely self-funded. If we are able to raise the remaining money for the film we’ll be able to complete these three things:

1. Add unforgettable music to the film.

2. Add motion graphics to the film which will help us tell the story more powerfully.

3. Final color correction which will bring the film to a completely different aesthetic level making it a feast for the eyes to watch.

These three things easily cost double what we are asking for in this campaign. We are incredibly lucky to have three very generous men on the project that are working for much less than their full fee just to help us get this done so we can get out there and change lives.

>>>Every dollar that is raised beyond the campaign amount will go directly towards bringing the film to as many high schools and middles schools all over the country as we possibly can this year.<<<<

If you think adults need these conversations you should know that our children are starving for this kind of authenticity. I’ve seen it first hand in classrooms and auditoriums all over the country.

We need this now.

Thank you for your support!

Denise Soler Cox is an award-winning entrepreneur and public speaker turned filmmaker. Fueled by her own identity crisis as a Latina born to Puerto Rican parents in New York, Soler Cox struggled to fit into her surroundings. Straddling two cultures - the Puerto Rican lifestyle at home and the American dream beyond those four walls, Denise experienced firsthand the challenges, compromises and inequalities that many sons and daughters of Spanish-speaking immigrants go through every day. In 2012, Denise connected with Henry Ansbacher, an Oscar-nominated documentary veteran and together they are giving this cultural issue a public stage through Project Enye (ñ). A boisterous voice at the helm of Project Enye (ñ), Denise has been featured in media outlets like CNN, Fox News Latino, NBC, Univision and Telemundo. She is a regular blog contributor to Huffington Post Latino Voices and is a syndicated content provider for AOL.com.

Risks and challenges

Every documentary film production comes with a slew of challenges, and the making of "The Enye (ñ) Experience" is no different. If we reach our Kickstarter goal, then the biggest challenge will be completing this film in time to premiere it by the end of February 2016. We plan to reach this deadline by being diligent and efficient with our time and having our team work full time on this project, which this funding will allow us to continue to do.
