from a good friend:

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

I wanted to give you an update on my latest film project, RACHEL IS. It is a documentary following a year in the life of a young Pittsburgh woman with mental retardation. It is a powerful film about one family's struggle toprovide an independent life for their daughter. Please check out our newly updated website:

We are in the process of submitting the film to festivals and distributors for consideration, so any leads there would be great.Our biggest need right now, though, is to secure additional funds for our marketing efforts. Check out the site and learn more, but if you are interested in making a gift - all donations are tax deductible through Pittsburgh Filmmakers - it would go a long way to helping us bring this film to the public. Honestly, any amount helps - $5, $10, $100, $10,000!

Contributions can be sent to: Jasdeep Khaira Pittsburgh Filmmakers 477 Melwood Ave. Pittsburgh, Pa 15213 Checks should be written out to Pittsburgh Filmmakers with a note in the memo that it is for "Rachel Is". I really appreciate all the support, and look forward to updating you on the film's progress.

Sincerely, Henry J. Simonds Producer, RACHEL IS 412-877-3528
