The Documentary “THE DISCARDED”
THE DISCARDED tells the story of single father filmmaker, activist and co-director Glen Gibellina , who channels his experience of living through Family Court with the lens of a video camera. By using my unique perspective, I aim to pull the curtain back for viewers and expose how the current Family Court crisis is having a devastating effect on those who are victims and children of the Family Courts. A gritty, firsthand look at a reality most would rather turn away from.
THE DISCARDED challenges viewers to bear witness and confront the daily struggles and hopes of those living through Family Courts of a system that has rejected and abused them with no Judicial discretion.
THE DISCARDED is more than just a film, it is an expression of the anger, sadness, joys and hopes of people who have been historically stereotyped, destroyed, silenced and marginalized by Family Courts and ignored by the mainstream media. It is the story of one man’s determination to expose the Family Courts of the 12th Circuit with a camera and begin to show what is really going on in the inner workings of Family Courts in Florida.
THE DISCARDED weaves the stories captured by myself in true street journalist style, with his own personal journey of the Family Courts and to have his chance at redemption when he learns camera and editing skills to produce this Documentary, and I will.
THE DISCARDED places these personal narratives against the backdrop of a grassroots movement that is rising up, using the power of the people to challenge the current family court system. Not a simple illumination of individuals at their weakest.
THE DISCARDED seeks to inspire and empower by telling these collective stories of struggle while showing that hope still does exist.
PROJECT GOAL The goal of THE DISCARDED is to create an awareness of the challenges faced by victims of Family Courts all across America as they continue to cope with devastating effects of the controlled outcome of our Corrupt Family Courts. We are aiming to tell the story of people, including myself, who have taken things into their own hands and are attempting to create new ways to come together and exercise the power of the people for our most valuable asset our children. These are important stories and voices that have been historically underrepresented in the media, ignored by the courts, Judges and others. Your support can make that happen!
PROJECT STATUS We are currently in early production and are fundraising to continue to enable and empower my team to continue to do the film and the stories of the DISCARDED as we also begin filming our stories. Although we are in need of filmmakers that know how to create powerful films with little or no budgets, we also have equipment needs, travel costs, music rights to pay for and many other costs that become a reality when making a feature length documentary film. We will be in production through mid 2013 with a projected release in late 2014
PROJECT DETAILS We have a fiscal sponsor, _(looking for a angel) _which is a registered 501c3 non profit organization or not. We are also in consideration for funding from the highly acclaimed WMNF (we hope) The production of this project is also being supported and assisted by and their incredibly talented production team which includes award winning filmmakers_(still looking)_
Never give up, never retreat and never, never surrender.
