The Twist of Unexpected

about the project

My name is Lisa and I'm a MA Filmmaking student at Kingston University. For my dissertation project I have written and directed my own film - TARA'S FATE. I am hoping to raise money to cover the cost of this production. 

Tara's Fate is a dark comedy which explores the concept of illness anxiety disorder, sometimes called hypochondria. This film focuses particularly on cardiophobia (fears of having a heart attack). This film was produced to raise awareness of this particular disorder, which is not often talked about.
