  • MENTAL HEALTH & CINEMA
Calling all musicians and composers to join us. 
A few years ago I discovered Diane while watching a video @stylelikeu
I invited her to see my film LoveTrue and she shared with me her daughter Imogen's story who suffered from mental illness & left her music & diaries behind. I felt her story had to be told and called my UK partner in crime Margo Mars @we.are.lief ❤️ The new short doc “Imogen” is a raw narrative that tackles grief and the importance of prioritizing mental health. As the world continues to work on creating more awareness towards mental health, this captivating short is hosting special LIVE online preview screenings followed by a moderated conversation.

This Thursday, May 21st at 12 p.m. PST, joined by the film’s composer Charlotte Hatherley (ASH, Bat For Lashes, Nakhane) with producer/FREE THE WORK founder Alma Har’el (yours truly), director Lola Young, and guest Claire Cordeaux of the British Association for Performing Arts Medicine.

In partnership with Help Musicians, they will discuss the film’s stunning soundtrack, a posthumous collaboration containing the achingly intense demos Imogen left behind, and celebrate the value of music to mental health.
*
If your first reaction was “absolutely, sign me up,” you are in for something very special. We are giving away tickets to the virtual screening!
To secure your spot, you must:
1. Follow @FREETHEWORK 
2. RSVP on the Eventbrite link on my bio.

We will accept RSVPs until Wednesday AM, May 20th. We have a limited amount of seats to give away, so RSVP asap!
*
Filmmakers Note: “Imogen” deals openly with subjects such as depression, eating disorders, self-harm, self-medication and the constant struggle to answer to oneself ‘What is wrong with me?’. The film may be triggering for some viewers. Talking can bring huge relief. There are wonderful organizations who will listen 24/7 @samaritanscharity @crisistextline.
*
To all those underrepresented composers out there, you deserve to be heard! Join the FREE THE WORK community by making your own profile and getting your music out there.

  • Hey! Write me some questions below and come hang out with me today at 11AM PST when I talk to some of the winners of @sxsw who are now @amazonprimevideo platform. This is part of our @freethework LIVE IG series. 
How is everyone holding up? I’ve been sick for weeks and coming up for air. No pun intended. I’m blown away by everyone on the frontline and in a state of existential reset most days. Rethinking a lot of life choices and time management. 
If you’re trying to hold on to life and make this time matter while being locked down don’t miss on everything @FREETHEWORK is doing. Swipe for some life you can still catch today and some you missed... There’s a community around the world waiting for you.

Repost @time "For 72 years, TIME named a Man of the Year.  In 1999, Man of the Year gave way to Person of the Year. While the name rightly changed, too often the choice was the same. With this project, we’re spotlighting influential women who were often overshadowed."

Introducing the 100 Women of the Year project—a chance to spotlight influential women who have been so often overshadowed by history. To recognize these women, we embarked on a historic project: selecting a woman or group to represent each year from 1920 to 2019, and then creating a TIME cover for them. Each cover is visually emblematic of the period its subject represents. Read the stories behind the 100 #womenoftheyear covers at the link in bio.

Huge props (and thanks) to @alma.harel on the creative collaboration - so epic!
