Shocking & Heartbreaking Short Film
Taking The Internet By “STORM” This Week

Award-winning short film Fragile Storm is moving viewers to tears and raising awareness about a devastating global illness

Over the past year and a half the powerful short film Fragile Storm, starring Lance Henriksen, has screened at more than 26 film festivals garnering 20 nominations and 18 wins including the prestigious $10,000 ‘Rising Star’ award at the 2017 Cinegear Expo Film Competition.  This week the film is taking the internet by storm, racking up an impressive 15,000 views in the first 36 hours.

In Fragile Storm, award-winning filmmaker Dawn Fields tells the story of an isolated couple who struggle to deal with the increasingly violent outbreaks brought on by one spouse’s tormented battle with Alzheimer’s disease.  “Alzheimer’s disease is a challenging journey for both patients and their caregivers, and too often it becomes a lonely and isolating experience,” said Fields, who both co-wrote and directed the short film. “I wanted the audience to understand the ‘terror’ that is often felt on both sides, and the strength and endurance it takes to face the disease. Ultimately we hope that our film demonstrates to patients and caregivers that they are not alone and encourage anyone suffering to seek help.”

The entire month of June is National Alzheimer’s & Brain Awareness month.  By watching and sharing Fragile Storm online, people can help raise awareness and open a dialogue about the 15.9 million dementia caregivers across America who struggle to keep their loved ones safe and cared for.
