Ian, A Moving Story
Directed by Abel Goldfarb
Argentina | 9 min | 2019
Ian was born with cerebral palsy. Like all kids, he wants to have friends, but discrimination and bullying keep him from his beloved playground. Ian won’t give up easily, accomplishing something that will surprise everyone.
For what looks like a lot of whimsy on screen was one of the single most difficult and complex productions I’ve ever helmed. With dozens of locations, practical and visual effects, as well as the worst run of luck ever with weather in Los Angeles made for purely miserable shooting conditions. But for all the struggle it is still one the best films I had the pleasure to be involved in. I learned a valuable lesson on this production, a film is not made by one person, most of my crews to this point had been very small productions even my feature “Farewell Darkness” never had more than 25-30 people on set at any one time, IWHD had over 100 on the day we filmed the climax and everyone of them had a job to do and did it well they did.
