It’s mid September of 2001 and Fawn, a sheltered yet curious girl living in Manhattan, begins to feel as if everyone is keeping a secret from her…

– A Short Film Based on a True Story –

My Story.

Think back to the day of September 11th, 2001. Do you remember where you were and what you were doing when the tragic news broke? Most Americans do, but what if it was kept from you? What if your world was so sheltered you didn’t realize the city you lived in was falling apart around you? That was the kind world I lived in when I was a kid.

The Imaginary Dragons is intended to provide a fresh perspective into the events of that day- my perspective. However, I’ll be the first to admit this isn’t a 9/11 story. This is the story of a young, privileged girl who attempts to seek out the truth despite her over protective Mother’s attempts to shelter her from the tragedies that exist just beyond their perfect world- 9/11 just happens to be the catalyst of their conflict. When it comes down to it this film is about the importance of awareness, and perspective became a key tool in bringing this story to life.
