Overview
The Indiegogo campaign has concluded. Tax deductible donations can still be made at our IDA page: http://www.documentary.org/film/everything-must-change That’s when the next phase of our project begins - sharing the film with as wide an audience as possible. It’s clear to us that there needs to be a HUGE shift in the way Western Medicine views disease. We want to be a part of that change.

What your funding supports!

- Mastering a Digital Cinema Package (needed for theater screenings) 

- Online target marketing 

- Advertising

- Events to raise awareness

Family, identity, home, life and death are all themes explored in Everything Must Change.  Over the last 6 years we have been intensely living through Mariam's Breast Cancer diagnosis, while making this intimate film.  The story has taken a life of it's own and expanded into a broader story of hope, healing and survival. Having personally financed the film for over 6 years, we've maxed out our funds and need your support to complete the film in time for festival submissions this September.

Dear Friends,

Six years ago when I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer, I thought it would just be a “bump in the road.”  Boy, was I wrong.  With the help of my ex-boyfriend Kenny Krauss, who came to support me, we started documenting my journey from the very beginning not knowing where it would take us.  What unfolded was stranger than anything we could have ever imagined. Despite the personal challenges of living through it, while making the film, we continued to follow the story. And we didn't hold back.  It's RAW, REAL, FUNNY and UPLIFTING.

Needless to say, facing a life threatening illness has irreversibly changed us both. This uplifting documentary explores themes such as: the quest for meaning when faced with a life-threatening illness and the healing power of true love and friendship.

Kenny and I have over 20 years of experience working on TV shows telling other people’s stories. We have worked for networks including: CBS, PBS, ABC, FOX, MTV, A&E and more. Our documentary, The Fighting Cholitas, about female Bolivian wrestlers premiered at Sundance, winning an Honorable Mention and went on to be screened at a hundred festivals around the world, winning 9 additional awards along the way.

We have been filming and editing this story for the last 6 years. At this point, we are asking for your support to finish the film.  We have a 73 minute cut, but have to raise finishing funds to complete it. Our goal of $35,000 will go towards:

  • 2 additional weeks of Editing @ $6,000
  • Music composition and licensing @ $7,000
  • Archival footage licensing @ $3,500
  • Color correcting @ $7,500
  • Audio mixing @ $6,500
  • Festival submission fees @ $1,000
  • Indiegogo/IDA fees @ $3,500

Help us produce this uplifting story and spread the inspiring message of HOPE and LOVE. 

Thank you all!

Lots of Love,

Mariam and Kenny
