That's a Wrap!

Thanks to everyone's support and love, we just wrapped production. We filmed for six days spread out over ten days. We had an amazing hard-working crew that didn't even let a thunderstorm stop them from going. A huge shout out to our underwater team and our incredibly talented lead actress, Annelyse Ahmad for a rigorous and difficult underwater shoot. More coming your way.

We came to the end of our campaign! We are truly grateful to all of our supporters. We are making the film, thanks to you!

About

Silver Cord

A whole new world awaits...

Silver Cord is an experimental narrative that tells the tale of a journey of farewell between a soul and body as they both attempt to transcend to their ultimate destinations: afterlife for the soul and ground for the body. The film centers around Maya, a woman in her early thirties, whose soul disconnects from her body after a hiking accident, taking her to a hallucinogenic state where she embarks on a voyage of self-discovery and revelation in a whole new world of the afterlife. 

 

Vision

Our passion for filmmaking, as a duo of producer and director, is fueled by creating acceptability and an understanding of different cultures, religions and generation gaps. Our work is usually driven from curiosity about unfamiliar territories and circumstances and how the craft of filmmaking can be used as a creative medium to explore the extraordinary ways humans interact with their environments, and how it can help people rediscover their curiosity about the world.

Through our version of the afterlife, we hope to give out what it has given to us - a deeper sense of who we are, where we come from and why our lives on Earth hold purpose and meaning.
