Art House – Dramedy
Generation X, Millenials.
IN A WORLD OBSESSED WITH PERFECTION, AN ECLECTIC WOMAN REALIZES THAT LIFE IS BETTER IMPERFECT.
THE iMPERFECT PiCTURE is a short art-house dramedy that shines a light on the ones that remain unseen in a world where everyone strives to be seen on social media. It invites us to embrace imperfection as a way to create authentic human connections.
Anna is an eclectic woman in her 30s. One morning, she stumbles upon a show called Living the Perfect Life. The ideal pitched by the radio host is far away from Anna’s own existence and it makes her feel like an outsider. To escape her frustration, she dives into her imaginary world, until a call from her funny and intellectual friend Jean, distracts her from her thoughts. Jean challenges her to face the real world and observe things from a different perspective. The dialogue between them brings back Anna’s memories from the past and makes her relive all the feelings that have shaped her journey.
We live in an era where we are more connected than ever with technology yet we’re disconnected on a human level. We’re interested in the lives of celebrities and influencers, yet we’re blind to the lives of people we cross every day in the street.
The Covid-19 pandemic hit humanity hard. Being forced to distance ourselves from one another and only interact online through social media and apps, made us re-evaluate the importance of physical connection and real authentic relationships. THE iMPERFECT PiCTURE inspires humanity to reconnect with one another on a deeper level, it shines a light on the outsiders and inspires all the people who feel different, and invisible to stand out and express their voice without the fear of being judged.
Our desire for this film is to create a space in time where we can stop, reconnect with one another, and share our authentic story.
“Cinema has the ability to teach us how to see and when we choose to see people that we normally don’t, we begin to acknowledge their very existence”. Alfonso Cuarón
In November 2019 we have raised part of the funds to produce the film via a crowdfunding campaign on Seed&Spark. In January 2020 we’ve been awarded the Panavision New Filmmaker Program grant for camera and lenses. NOW WE NEED YOUR HELP TO FINISH THE FILM! We welcome your donations for POST-PRODUCTION, MARKETING, and DISTRIBUTION. The funds we’ll raise will help us cover expenses such as Editing, Color Correction, VFX, Sound Design, Music Score, Festivals Submissions, Marketing, and Distribution Expenses.
When you donate to this project you become part of our movement and you inspire other people who feel imperfect, different, or invisible to stand out and express their voice without the fear of being judged.
