My niece Sarah is a graduate student at the University of Texas. She is a filmmaker and working on her pre-thesis short film entitled In Nomine Patris. Her synopsis of the film: “One woman overcomes the ghost of generations of domestic violence against women in her family to bring them all together.” She has a Kickstarter campaign to help fund the project here. Please think about donating to this project. Not only will you be helping a student get her film made, you will be bringing attention to an important issue that is too often swept under the rug. Donations as little as $1.00 are accepted. There are also gifts included for different donation amounts. You could get a copy of the film, be listed in the credits, or be a producer, among others. Sarah is a talented filmmaker and has a bright future. Who knows, someday you may be able to say, “I helped her get her start!” as you watch her accept an Oscar.
