HELP US TO FUND THE NEW PROJECT:

STRANGERS

Short Film Production Project STRANGERS

Genre: psychological thriller

Logline

KEVIN (18) cannot bear to live any longer and decides to take his life. ANTHONY (20), a lighthearted adventure seeker, agrees to help him.  A deadly power game ensues, a battle of egoism, fear, and cruelty that unexpectedly turns into a story of sacrifice and deliverance. 

 

Mission 

Our film is about the vulnerability of youth and the tragic, cruel dimension of loneliness. But it’s also about how courage and kindness can overcome the terror of isolation.  We believe this story is important and timely.

Naïve campaigns geared toward young people about saying no to drugs, no to guns, etc. have fallen on deaf ears. Examining those issues in the media, however, publicly and honestly, will mobilize society to help young people in their moments of despair and prevent them from taking that final, fatal step.
