“Finding Your Fairytale” – a documentary
Tuesday, November 10, 2020; 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.
“Finding Your Fairytale” aims to provide young adults with strong role models who demonstrate that happiness is achievable no matter what obstacles life presents. The film features 13 survivors who have overcome significant adversity – including mental illness, chronic disease and traumatic life circumstances – and are bravely telling their stories to fight stigma and raise awareness.
• After losing her mother to suicide, director Angie Kupper turned her pain into passion by helping others fight their own personal battles. The result of this project is the nonprofit and documentary, Finding Your Fairytale.
• The documentary follows as cast members transform into classic fairytale characters for a series of photo shoots that symbolically depict the personal struggle they have faced and their success in overcoming it.
• Candid interviews combined with whimsical imagery help to rekindle childhood optimism, inspire resilience and provide hope for happily ever after.
The 93-minute film is not rated; parent guidance under age 14 is recommended due to topics discussed. This film will be followed by a Q&A session with a few cast members. Since its release in 2019, the film and nonprofit, has been featured in various news outlets from CNN to TMJ4 News.
