What Is This???
It's Raining Again is an animated short film currently in pre-production that is written and directed by Cleveland-based filmmaker McKenna Rea Nalow. The film centers around Emile, a burnt-out student. When a storm hit's Emile's city one night, they discover that the rain has bizarre properties that can bring some excitement into their dull life. But after getting locked outside of their apartment building, Emile realizes that the rain may not be the gift they first thought it to be...
Okay... But Why?
It’s Raining Again is, first and foremost, an illustration of the experiences of a neurodivergent person, told by a team of neurodivergent people. The story was shaped by our own experiences with of mental health, in particular how we experience over and under stimulation and how those experiences influence our day to day lives. It is our biggest hope that in bringing this film to life, we can better help neurotypical viewers understand some of the experiences of neurodivergent people as well as give a bit of much needed visibility to those who do experience life as we do.
That's Cool, How Can I Help?
