Independent films cost a lot of time and money. We're passionate about our film and willing to put in the time, but we can't bring Dr. Saeed's story to life without your help. To reach a broad audience on platforms such as Netflix and PBS we need to raise funds to help pay for research and development, production, post-production and distribution. Time is of the essence! So many of our characters are older and will soon be too frail to film. If we are to preserve their unique experience and tales of unknown moments in history we must act now.
