“Victoria is a courageous and talented young woman and daughter who wants to help not only other stroke survivors, but their family and friends better understand stroke, survival and what comes next,” says Jeff Kagan who is also a stroke survivor and author of the book, Life After Stroke.
“I thing this is a great idea. Victoria needs your help to tell her story. Please visit her KickStarter page and look around. I am sure you will be touched and impressed and want to help,” says Kagan.
During her time between her new home in New York City and caring for her father in Connecticut, Victoria began writing the screenplay to Gold Star.
The story began as therapeutic, to cope with coming to terms with her father’s stroke, and evolved as her experiences with him changed.
In November of 2012, Carmine passed away peacefully, with a smile on his face.
Since that time, Victoria has pursued production for Gold Star. She amassed a talented and dedicated crew and is working with an all female producing team to bring this story to life.
Victoria is a trained actor, writer and director. She attended NYU Tisch School of the Arts and is using her training and the film community to make this film a reality.
The Gold Star team turned to Kickstarter to raise funds to make this story into a living, breathing and beautiful film.
“With Gold Star, Victoria hopes to inspire audiences to reflect on their own lives and relationships with their loved ones. She will be directing and starring playing a version of herself,” says Kagan.
Too many people shy away from things like stroke and death when there is so much to be learned from loved ones about survival and what it means to be human.
“My father Carmine may have passed, but he will survive through this file. Please support it here and share with your family and friends,” says Victoria Negri.
