Sleep, Wake, Forget, the first feature film by Wondria Films, is currently in post-production.
Sleep, Wake, Forget is a sci-fi/thriller that takes place years after civilization has fallen. It follows the story of two brothers who were able to survive the destroyed world because of a unique gift - the ability to look into the minds of others. Through collected memories of a past they never knew, they learned how to survive on their own... and how to defend themselves from the creatures that mankind had become.
This summer, Ariel Vida of Wondria Films has been on tour with The Lansing Unionized Vaudeville Spectacle, a 15-piece New Orleans/Eastern European-infused band that is "two parts musical ensemble, one part carnival sideshow act". Vida is producing a full-length documentary film following the band's 'Made in Michigan' tour.
Vida was able to travel to Michigan's Upper Peninsula with The LUVS after being awarded a generous grant from the New Leaders Arts Council of Michigan Retention and Engagement program, a young leaders advisory council of The Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs. The MCACA serves to encourage, develop and facilitate an enriched environment of artistic, creative and cultural activity in Michigan.
