Help Fund A Dark Fairytale Film About Hurricane Katrina, “The Repass”

December 30, 2014  |  

There is a new film to support on Indiegogo, The Repass, a “thrilling tale” of a young girl who uses Haitian Voodoo to learn what happened to her baby brother after he was displaced from their family during Hurricane Katrina. While she is under influence of Voodoo, the girl learns secrets that can either heal or harm her family.

The Repass is woven around the idea of how a girl wrestles with grief after tragedy as she transitions into the next phase of her life. The director, Rae Shaw says donated funds will help The Repass enter its pre-production phase. Also, donors will help debut the film in time for the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, a tribute to the people who died or survived the storm and its aftermath. In order to bring this film to theaters, Shaw and her team have set an Indiegogo goal of $35,000. That money will:

“Attach key cast through an agent or casting director ($10,000)
Set up our production office, attach key crew, and begin the tax incentives process in Louisiana ($15,000)
Pay legal fees to set up LLCs and investors documents ($10,000)”

The Repass has already earned recognition three major film award competitions: quarterfinalist, Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Nicholl Fellowship; finalist for a Juntobox Films competition; and quarterfinalist for Austin Heart Of Film Screenplay Competition. Described as a blend of Alice In Wonderland, The Sixth Sense and Eve’s Bayou, The Repass looks intriguing and layered to us. With its campaigning ending in two days, watch the trailer below and donate.
