Hi guys! I wanted to share an exciting update on the short film “The Nurse” that I’ve been working on. We now have our production team in place and will begin filming in June. But, I need your help to make this project a success. Please spread the word about this film to your friends and family. And, if you can, please consider donating to our GoFundMe page to bring this story to life. As I’ve shared, “The Nurse” is a powerful and emotional narrative about the impact of dementia on relationships and how love can overcome even the most difficult circumstances.
This story will raise awareness about the effects of dementia on relationships and how one can still find hope and resilience in such a difficult situation.
If you are just now hearing about my project, it’s a short film I wrote that is a powerful fusion of “Still Alice” and “The Vow.” It shares an intimate and poignant narrative about a woman who is trying to care for her husband with dementia. In a raw emotional moment, she is asked to leave their home of twenty years when her husband, unable to recognize her, mistakes her for a stranger. She must now find a way to return and continue caring for the man she deeply loves. In an aha moment, she alters her appearance and comes back as her husband’s live-in nurse, caring for him, cooking his favorite meals and watching his favorite movies. Over time, her husband begins to feel safe with her and eventually realizes he is falling in love with her. Yes. She won his heart a second time.
I’ve heard from several of you that the story really resonates with you, and I can’t wait to share it with the world. Thank you for your continued support! I’ll keep you posted on the progress. Thanks again! You can see the trailer on the Gofund me site. https://gofund.me/f1ea2fe6
