The Angst Project is an effort to creatively stimulate conversation among friends around anxiety, depression, hope, and love.
Our goal is to build a library of short stories, each about 3 to 7 minutes long, that show (in first person) individuals experiences of anxiety, depression, hope, and love. These short stories will attempt to raise questions and provide possible resources for help.
The short stories will be posted on the website. When we get enough short stories, and if we raise enough funds (100K minimum), we will further develop the short stories into a full-length documentary similar to Normie, ASK, and Compelling Love.

When Annemarie, a young Dallas millennial, looks in the mirror she hates her own reflection because she sees Down syndrome. She is desperate for a normal life. For her, full independence from her parents and the hope of starting her own family are just out of reach.
She sets out on a journey of self-discovery. She speaks with a celebrated illusionist, an empathic doctor, and an atypical pastor as she considers what it means to be limited, flawed and broken – a script at the root of her pain. Along the way, Annemarie not only confronts her own illusions, but also listens to the struggles of several parents of children with Down syndrome, including her own.
