Carla Forte’s Ann on Indiegogo
Miami-based filmmaker Carla Forte is one of the three filmmakers I’ll be speaking to tomorrow night at the Miami Beach Cinematheque, and our talk sits right in the middle of the Indiegogo campaign for her latest feature, Ann. Forte is a performer, screenwriter and director, as well as Executive Director of Bistoury Physical Theatre and Film. Read the information below, check out the video above and consider donating to her campaign.
Ann is a feature film narrating the story of Ruben, a lower-class visual artist who has decided to abandon his tormented life by taking refuge within his own imagination; creating a world parallel to reality, which distances him from all material and emotional attachment, thus exorcising his ego.
His transgender wife Ann, in the face of a deteriorating relationship, attempts to understand Ruben’s idealized world; however, her husband’s physical and psychological degradation unravels a terrible confusion between reality and his imaginarium (imaginary world), which inevitably will force him to choose which world to belong to before it is too late.
While we made the film on an extremely limited budget and a lot of passion, we are asking the community for donations for to assist with post-production costs. If we reach our goal of $20.000 through Indiegogo, we will be able to complete this film with optimal quality.
The Director Carla Forte will continue the mission to contribute to promote needed change by raising awareness around responsible pet ownership, promote adoption, and improve the living conditions of animals presently in Miami Dade County Animal Services, and will include the participation of the one of the most successful animal adoption centers in Central America – the Territorio de Zaguates, Costa Rica.
