Mission Statement

For millions of survivors of sexual violence, it - the trauma - never goes away. However, like the same millions - survivors learn to live, albeit more cautiously. This film, based on the director's true story, will unmask what rape victims feel and give voice to the healing and love that can exist.

The Story

Based on the filmmaker's true story, do you remember me? follows Nicky as she faces the trauma of a rape that occurred more than 36 years ago. Although decades have passed since this traumatic experience, Nicky learns to cope with the impact of the rape even though she has trained herself to live without the daily reminders of what happened to her at 18-years-old. That is until she opens her social media account to see a friend request from one of the four men who attacked her on May 4, 1987. Upon staring at the man looking back at her on her computer screen, Nicky, visibly shaken, types a message to Dale via a chat box "do you remember me?"


The men who attacked Nicky that night didn't just take her innocence; they took her drive, her dreams, and her love for herself and others. It took many years for Nicky to regain these things, but nothing has erased the haunting of that evening. Like millions of survivors of rape, incest, and sexual assault, it - the assault - never goes away. However, like the same millions - you move on ever more cautiously in a world that allows people like Dale to exist. This powerful story has already received two screenplay awards: The 2022 LaCoy Production Fund Award and placed as a quarter-finalist in the 2023 Scriptation Showcase.


The project aims to create a collaborative partnership with the Boston Area Rape Crisis Center to raise awareness about critical issues through compelling visual storytelling and impactful campaigns. Utilizing state-of-the-art technology and creative strategies, the project will deliver powerful messages to engage and educate the audience.
