My new web series is online!

I’m excited to announce the release of a new web series called Bailout that I hope you’ll take a moment to check out and if you like it, to also donate to.

What’s it about?

Bailout is set in 2009 and follows the story of Shahlah or “Shay”, an Iranian American woman whose credit card debt presents a series of emotional and logistical challenges with her immigrant family. The first episode was released a few days ago. The second one will be released once we reach the $15k half-way fundraising mark on our Kickstarter Campaign.

How can I help?!

If you like what you see, here’s a few things you can do to help this series succeed:

Why tell this story?

I’m interested in exploring how credit cards create a blurry understanding of what it means to be “middle class” in the United States.

I’m interested in offering a wider spectrum of representation for Iranian Americans and other people often marginalized from mainstream media.

And several other good reasons you can read about here.

I hope you’ll help this project continue by donating $10, $15 or $20 today.
