PIERCING THE VEIL

"From the heart of one family, a journey to eternity."

Update: Paul Fleschner Productions logo unveiled:


Update:
The Good Day Live interview: 

Additional press: Here are two articles that give a great overview of this project: click to read coverage from the Tribune-Star and from the Sisters of Providence.

This film is about my Uncle Larry's experience with cancer and my family's response to his illness and suffering.  We need your help to bring this film to the world.  It could be a real help to those that suffer from chronic and terminal disease, and their family members.  It shows a family gathering around a loved one, and a Mystery gathering around the family -- a Love that carries us all.

This film features both Catholic and Protestant family members; it interweaves their heartfelt responses to suffering close at hand.  And the underlying story speaks to all denominations, perhaps all traditions -- anyone struggling with the crisis of letting go.  

I think this film could strike a chord with so many people, could help so many -- and that was my Uncle's intention when he agreed to make the film; when he agreed to open up his life at its most vulnerable.  The film gives hope to all that suffer.

One of the people that gave my uncle hope was Mother Theodore, the saint that said, "Put aside all uneasiness about the future.  Place yourself gently into the hands of Providence."  This film is about having the strength and grace to do just that.

I've already put seven years and considerable financial resources into the production of this film, and need another $154,000.00 to properly finish and launch the film into the world.  I am a filmmaker with a proven track record.

Here are my remaining costs:

$38,500 Post-Production: Editing, Music, Foley, and Digital Masters
$38,500 Domestic Marketing: Producer's Rep, Publicist, Web, and Print 
$77,500 Global Marketing: Sales Rep, Web, Print, and Foreign Language Versions

I need your help.  I am partnering with friends to provide special Perks for you:

Journals of a Saint - a book of the Journals and Letters of St. Mother Theodore Guerin, foundress of the Sisters of Providence, first Saint from Indiana, canonized 2006 in Rome.  (453 pages)  From the book jacket: "The Journals and Letters of Mother Theodore Guerin takes us back more than one hundred years to an era of our history that is rapidly being forgotten in the excitement and eventful happenings of the present day. Through its graphic portrayal the life of Religious in pioneer days, not only in Indiana, but also of the Midwest, comes to life with clarity and vigor."

Arch, Steeples, and Dome: Religious Symbols on  a Journey of Faith by Sister Marie Kevin Tighe, S.P. (140 pages)  From the book jacket: "Arch, Steeples, and Dome, Religious Symbols on a Journey of Faith is a reflective memoir where Marie Kevin Tighe leads the reader through the tremendous changes in the Church after the second Vatican Council regarding the principles of shared responsibility. It culminates with the Canonization of Saint Mother Theodore Guerin, the foundress of the Sisters of Providence at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, Indiana."
