A clown walks into a bar and stumbles into a curious game where they learn the rules of give and take.

The Giver Gives to Give is a black & white silent film experiment shot on 16mm. With an All-Star cast of musicians and an original score by SASAMI, this film is a pure exploration of human potential rooted in noise and Rock N’ Roll. We made this film as a pursuit to deeper understand our own hearts and the hearts of others, what it means to give and how to navigate the circus of it all. Now that the film has been shot and is moving onto post-production stages, it is time to do justice to our amazing cast and crew who made this dream a reality, many of whom offered to offset their compensation until we are able to secure proper funding. We are inviting you to join our process to ensure we are able to wrap this project with proper compensation for our entire crew, as well as to cover basic screenings and distrubtion.
