AGNES: A short film provoking awareness to the mass shootings in the United States.
We all see it in the news. Too often. Too casually. Too many instagram posts forgotten, too many tweets scrolled passed. Did you know that in just 2022 alone, 604 mass shootings have taken place in the U.S., with 39,470 total deaths as a result of gun violence? It doesn’t occur to many people that the U.S. has experienced an average of 1.68 mass shootings per day so far this year – the scariest part is that this insanity has become normalized.
When the mass shooting in Trader Joe’s in Los Feliz took place in 2018, Actor and Director Nora Arnezeder decided to take action. She gathered a team of creatives to address the issue in the format of a short film. That was the beginning of AGNES.
After 4 years of working on the script and assembling the team, we are finally ready to start production – we need your help to make this vision come true.
As of January 5th, this project has raised $3,500 of their $40,000 goal. This project has 30 days left to raise the $40,000 or it will not be funded. For a pledge of $10, you will get a thank you credit. For a pledge of $25, you will get a producers cut of the film.
