A college workshop on the most insidious red flags of abuse and trauma built around our short film Silk

Stay tuned for information on Silk in the film festival circuit and on its public release.

Healing TREE hosts College Workshops on the Red Flags of Abuse and Trauma built around our short film Silk… Gifted aerialist Cara falls hard for Sol, the lighting designer on her upcoming high-stakes solo show. When safety and communication issues plague rehearsals, Cara begins to doubt her perceptions and grows more and more dependent on Sol. With the outside perspective of good friends, Cara is forced to consider that her anxiety and growing insecurities have been planted in her mind by Sol in an effort to control her. This short narrative nod to the classic film Gaslight features stunning aerial work by renowned performer Crista Marie Jackson (The Greatest Showman) and also stars Fran Kranz (The Cabin In The Woods), Louisa Krause (Billions) and Garcia (Tales of the City). Silk is directed by John Magaro (The Many Saints of Newark, The Umbrella Academy, Carol, The Big Short) and written by award-winning playwright David Caudle and Healing TREE founder Marissa Ghavami. Silk is a Healing TREE production, in association with Face It, Poison Fruit Productions, Dr. David Grand and Dr. Jamie Marich. Stay tuned for information on Silk in the film festival circuit and on its public release.
