On January 20th, 2017, we had our official launch party and screening debut of our short film, "I Am Your... A Journey Through A Fading Past". Friends, family, colleagues, and clients gathered at Delancey Street Theatre in San Francisco to celebrate the big night. (We launched under the name Memory Catchers but have since rebranded to 88spire.)
About the film
"I Am Your...A Journey Through A Fading Past" is a short travel film dedicated to preserving and capturing a granddaughter and grandmother's relationship. Veronica's grandmother, Amah, has been surviving with Alzheimer's disease for decades causing the memories, stories, and herself to fade away with time.
Veronica and Bryan were given the opportunity to visit Amah's birthplace and former home, Hong Kong. During their visit, they went back to the places from Amah's past--her home, school, father's workplace, and the island her grandparents lived on.
This film gracefully weaves through the past while intertwining with the present to create new memories that will last a lifetime. It leaves viewers touched, moved, and inspired to learn more about their own family history and pasts.
