Our 
Story

The Cassandra Project

The Cassandra Project is a short-film trilogy depicting the high stakes impact of women’s voices not being heard.

 

The production team, a collective of women-led creatives, seeks to build a community and inspire conversations that work toward a future vision where women are heard, accepted, and understood.

Through this Project, we are embracing all voices and investing in our vision of the world we want to see.

Three films. Three genres. Three scenarios. One unifying and terrifying truth.

Hi Friends,

Like many of you, we have been disturbed by the current state of things in our country. So much progress has been reversed recently, that it often feels like retreat or resignation are the two most viable options. But we refuse to do that.

 

In discussing what we can do to push back, fight and take a stand, we decided to create “The Cassandra Project,” a trilogy of short films showcasing the reality and risks of women not being believed. Three films, three genres, three scenarios – one unifying and terrifying truth.

 

You probably know the myth of Cassandra, the Trojan priestess with the power to know the future but who was cursed to never be believed. Though this myth is 2,500 years old, it is as relevant as ever. Women today continue to be dismissed and doubted, and it seems the stakes of women not being heard or believed only continue to increase.

 

The specific idea for this project came from one of our own experiences of a medical crisis that was discounted, disregarded, and disbelieved.  The rest of us watched for months as our friend’s health deteriorated and she tried to get help, but it wasn’t until she was critical that she received the medical care necessary.  Unfortunately, this is not an isolated incident.  In almost every scenario imaginable, women’s voices are not given the same credence as their counterparts, and the stakes for everyone are extremely high.

 

We are storytellers. Our avenue for rallying, motivating, and inspiring is through story. We invite you to help us tell the stories of these three women who all, like Cassandra, are disbelieved–in each case, leading to extremely high stakes situations.

 

The films will shoot starting in March 2023 and be complete by summer, 2023.  They will be submitted to all the major film festivals and to the Academy for Oscar consideration in the short film category.

 

Our goal is to raise funds for production costs, including cast and crew, camera, grip and lighting equipment, art department expenses, locations, permits, catering and post production costs.

 

Please consider joining us in this endeavor by making a tax deductible donation to our project. Every contribution, no matter the amount, will help us raise awareness and affect change with these films; every single dollar is deeply appreciated.

 

Let’s do this!
