Follow Cassandra down the rabbit hole as she teeters between the known and unknown; between reality and imagination. Cassandra Awakens explores the delicate veil that is children's cancer, in all its tragedy and hope. Set in a fairy-tale world, accompany Cassandra through the forest, down the river and into her dreams as she seeks an answer to the disease through her looking glass. As she treads a rustic terrain, she encounters the feral children of the forest, a fragile balance of compromised innocence and unresolved destiny. The feral children of the forest guide Cassandra to an alternate prosperity. A look into what could have been within the blanket fruitfulness of eternal youth, Cassandra seeks and ultimately finds redemption. But could this all be as it seems? Is it merely appearance or illusion? Awaken with Cassandra as she guides us. Written by Ana Renovica

Did You Know?


The scene where Cassandra meets the children and dozens of balloons appear was shot with only 40 children, while 150 of them were added in CGI. For the effect of balloons appearing and falling on children, the reverse effect was done, so the kids were shot while letting go of the balloons. More than 300 balloons rose to the sky for a few shoots. See more »
