I Am Me Film

2016 DOCUMENTARY FILM PROJECT

This summer, FFTF worked with young aspiring filmmakers from the Washington, DC area to make our 2016 Documentary Film Project entitled "I Am Me." (Sophie Sither and Ricco Williams, Co-Directors). The film features four young people who are overcoming physical and learning disabilities and inspiring those around them. Our team wrapped up filming in August and will began post-production this fall. We invite you to enjoy behind the scenes photos and a video clip from the film.
