Our latest film project, “Tombstone Pillow” which premiered at Oscar-qualifying LA Shorts and won Best Drama at ICP Shorts Series, is one of our most passionate social change projects yet.
This is a dream come true to be able to come up with an idea and story and have a desire to help a community, then get the funding to make the film, lead a group of 100 cast and crew through the most intense cinema environment imaginable and finally be able to share the film with the world.
We surveyed the people who live in the cemetery and found out the help they most need and want is medical care and clean water.
Our mission is to raise money to improve their lives and future generations living there.
Producer and star of Tombstone Pillow, Lou Duque Baron with the help of her husband, leads the Hope for the World Foundation which is a non-profit providing medical care in the Philippines and Mexico to those who desperately need it but cannot afford it.
Our immediate goal is to raise enough funds to be able to bring the mission to the Manila cemetery as is shown in the final scene of "Tombstone Pillow." Thereby helping the mothers, children and all who need basic medical care and thus giving them a better quality of life.
