A horror-comedy about Riley's first time in the exclusive, feminist, co-working space "The Pink" and she can sense something is off. When she figures out what it is, it might be too late.
Mission StatementThe Pink satirizes white capitalist feminism, ageism, toxic positivity all wrapped up in a comedic, female gaze package. It’s a film about the stuff we actually care about. It asks, how has the fight for equality become marketed and packaged into something so ugly? Even when it looks so damn pretty!
About The Project
Is it better to belong to a community, or lose yourself? You can’t have both.
It’s Riley’s first time at the feminist utopia, members-only, co-working space “The Pink” – and everything is a little too perfect. Why do all the women look the same if this "community" encourages uniqueness and true female empowerment? When Riley figures out what's really going on behind the Pepto Bismol veneer, it might be too late.
THE PINK is DEATH BECOMES HER set in a Goop world. It’s “Get Out” with a palette of “The Stepford Wives” for a millennial “the future is female” audience. It pokes at white capitalist feminism, ageism in a horror, female gaze package. Oh, and there's period stuff.
About the Film Makers
Writer/Director, Ingrid Haas leaned into personal experience as a jumping off point, The Pink, though a genre film, is deeply personal as it is based on experiences of feeling ostracized and not good enough for the cool girls.
To make this film, Ingrid brought on a team of women, who like her, were interested in telling stories that don’t have simple answers, the grey area, the tales that aren’t black or white, right or wrong.
The Pink team has already hit the ground running. We're in the beginning stages of putting together our crew, finding locations, and figuring out all the logisitcs that make a film set run smoothly and safely. BUT, to put all these plans into action we will need your contributions to this page.
We are going into Production in July, but we can't do that with out your help! If we hit our funding goal, by June we can-
- Ensure our cast and crews salaries
- Secure locations
- Rent equipment
- Make sure everyone is happy, safe, and fed
- Editing and Post Production
- Film Festival Submissions
Keeping Our Crew Safe and Healthy
Covid 19 has had a huge impact on productions, and keep our cast and crew safe is our biggest priority on set, and your money goes a long way to ensuring we can follow the most up to date guidelines, provide PPE, and regular testing for a crew.
Meeting Our Goal
The more money we raise the more we can ensure that this movie gets seen by as many people as possible. As much as we need your help to fund all the expenses that go into making a movie, we also need help getitng out there. Anything we raise in addition to our goal will go a long when it comes to submitting to film festivals and organizing screenings.
We are so excited to make this movie, but we can't do it with out your help!
