In the early 1980’s in St Kilda, Australia, a network of paedophiles preyed on street kids as young as 10 years old. By the time they were 16 years old, the children carried deep scars that they would take into adulthood. This is the story of four boys who survived this trauma. Some of these children, now as adults have found the courage to share their stories and collaborate in writing this short drama in a journey to personal and social healing.
Joining with script writers, directors, actors, film crew and experts in child protection they are creating a short dramatic film, Amissa Anima. The film will tell their stories of survival and healing.
Support us to expose the truth about this form of child exploitation in Australia. That it went on, that it’s going on and that it’s getting worse.
Amissa Anima is a fifteen-minute short screen drama to be produced on 4K digital video, engaging a crew of 25 people, with a cast of six main roles, and several supporting and stunt roles.
Timeline: 12 weeks with a twelve to eighteen month distribution period.
We have raised $5000 through The Australian Cultural Fund, and now seek $10,000 to $25,000: the more raised, the more pay for crew and cast, and higher the production values.
Many people are willing to volunteer for this project.
