Documentary Film Fund: 11DAYS
My Name is Charles Upham. I am the father of the late Native actress Misty Upham.
I am raising money to complete a documentary film project that tells the tragic story of how Misty was missing for 11 days and we did not recieve help from police or government services to find her.
I feel this film will raise awareness about the issues regarding the policies and practices of first responders that ultimately fail the people who desperately need these services. It is my hope that we can make a difference and implement positive changes in procedures for people in need emergency services because all lives matter. No family should ever have to experience the hopelessness of losing a child and not finding help with search and rescue from agencies with all the resources.
The money I raise will be used to purchase the equipment for film production, music production, travel to get the film shots and interviews, the cost of post production, computers and software, film festival, publication and distribution costs. The film project is underway but the current lack of funds, used outdated equipment are major factors in steps to completing the project in a timely manner.
I miss my daughter so much and this film is a way to tell her story and provide answers to questions by all her friends and family. It represents my quest to find closure and healing, I can still do something for my girl.
Your generous donation will be greatly appreciated.
All donors will receive a free digital copy of the film in HD.
You would have been 37 years old today. We miss you so much, especially on this day. I imagine we would be shopping for that perfect gift and we would be preparing you fav food stuff along with your cake. The last Birthday we had with you was when you turned 32. We spent the day at Juan and Darlene’s place while you share all the pomp and circumstance with the kids there. I remember your thoughts, that day, were with your friends in LA. Your eyes would sparkle as you shared stories about birthdays past where you would go a little crazy with your besties. That was 5 years ago but the memories still linger like it was last year. If I could, I would give anything to have you back with us alive and well. I can’t, but I can tell your story to the world in the hope that changes will be made so that no family will ever have to experience the anguish that we suffer everyday knowing that you could have been saved. Today we will bring flowers and balloons to your memorial site to honor the woman warrior who, in life, was a voice for the voiceless to bring awareness to the issues that needed to be address. Your legacy lives on as many are bring awareness to the plight of Missing and Murdered victims everywhere.
Please donate to our film fund to help us help tell Misty’s story.
Misty Anne Upham 1982-2014
per finished minute. We anticipate a 90 minute film.
Our film is still in post production. The release date has been pushed back due to some new information that was recently acquired. But what is most needed now is additional funding to complete the project. We need software and hardware upgrades as well as replacing broken equipment. Your generous donation will help us remedy these needs. Up till now many of Misty's friends and family were left to draw their own conclusions regarding her untimely death. Knowledge is power and this film will finally provide answers and closure but it can also foster change regarding the social injustice that Misty fell victim to in her final days. This is not just a personal problem or a cultural issue. Although it affects the culture of indigenous people and our personal lives this has become a growing epidemic that can be cured. Misty wanted to use her celebrity to raise awareness regarding issues that need to be addressed. A voice for the voiceless. This film represents her final cry to make a difference. Please support our endeavor with your generous donation. And share the link with people you know. Together we can make a positive and lasting change.
All lives matter.
Please help us tell Misty’s story. She deserved so much more. Support our documentary film project: 11 DAYS The Search for Misty Upham.
