Living with children with OCD during a pandemic
a short film
Here’s my (first ever!) documentary short film. Please watch it and then click through (via this link) to vote so it is considered by the contest’s jury when they vote on June 2nd! Thank you. For more info about the competition read below the image. Your vote can put my film in the top 10 for this competition, making it eligible to be reviewed by the jury for one of the top five prizes. For me this represents an opportunity to connect with folks in the film industry who are in a position to help me finish (and distribute) my feature film (MisLEAD: America’s Secret Epidemic), that has been in limbo for so long! So please do take 30 seconds to create a profile and vote for my short film — it could play a key role in forwarding my advocacy work this year, during these uncertain times (plus it’s something you can do to help that does not cost anything — and it could make a huge difference!) Thank you!

P.S. the masks my kids are wearing in the video are the organic cotton ones from Naturepedic (aflink!)
