Broken Wings Peace Documentary
Hi everyone – My name is Sima Galanti. I’m a singer-songwriter, actress, and aspiring documentary filmmaker who was born and raised in Israel. I followed my heart to the U.S. in pursuit of my musical dreams – and for hope, inspiration and deeper meaning in my life.
Since the age of 10, I knew that music was my calling. Pursuit of musical goals has taken me on incredible journeys to find my voice and myself. It’s given me the strength to become the artist and the woman I’ve always dreamt of becoming.
I’m currently working on a very special project and am excited to tell you about it. It all started when I wrote a song called “Broken Wings.” I wrote this song to bridge the gap between Israelis and Palestinians and to bring hope and inspiration to the new generation.
While seeking out a Palestinian artist to collaborate with me on “Broken Wings,” I decided to also create a documentary. I was facing so many obstacles in the process of making the song happen in the midst of a never-ending conflict between warring countries promoting hate, fear and instilling a radical belief system of ignorance.
I felt an undeniable sense of commitment to something so deep that was rising from the depth of my soul. I believed it was my duty as an artist, a human and a spiritual being to educate, inspire, and spread healing and a positive message in order to uplift people to a beautiful place of love.
This documentary will show how growing up in an environment of hate, fear and distrust can affect a person’s life, especially as a young child. You’ll also discover humanity, compassion, love, fear, the overcoming of life’s obstacles, and the exploration of radical belief systems that separate humanity as a whole. The crisis in the Middle East affects everyone’s lives and has a domino effect on all of us.
The film will raise questions regarding music and its place in healing the world, as well as healing our individual lives and pasts.
Recording of the soundtrack for the documentary has already begun, as has shooting of the film both within Los Angeles and on location in Israel and the West Bank. But now is where you come in.
As you can imagine, film and music production is very costly. This inspirational story is worthy of being told, and yet the funds to complete it properly are out of reach of just one individual as an independent project. To finish it, I need your help!
The money that you donate will go to things such as:
· Production team
· Camera crews
· Lighting & sound
· Color correction
· Music recording/mixing/mastering/distribution
· Photography & artwork
· Marketing & promotion
· Fees & donor rewards
I can’t wait to share the important “Broken Wings” message with all of you. Thank you so much for your love and support.
I'm super excited to share with you all that, the rough cut of my peace documentary 'Broken Wings' is complete as well, the film main soundtrack.
After watching the rough cut, I felt so moved and deeply touched by the incredible story that emerged during the many hours of the rough cut process. It was incredible to see the years of hard work finally coming together. It put tears in my eyes. I feel blessed and grateful to tell the story of all the incredible people in my film; Palestinian and Israeli musicians, Peace and non violent activists from both sides, as well, spiritual and religious leaders and many more.
The film message of unity, love, acceptance, peace, healing through music, coexistence is truly inspiring and powerful and I'm looking forward to share both the documentary and 'Broken Wings' soundtrack with all of you in 2019.
My main goal right now is to go back to Israel in order to do few reshoots and then edit the final cut of the film. That's where YOU come in. YOUR continues help is much needed!
As you know, flying to Israel can be expensive, as well, hiring a camera guy, a pro editor to edit the final movie, as well, color correction and sound design.
I couldn't do this without YOUR help and support and I'm truly grateful for each and everyone one of you who believed in my visions and my peace project 'Broken Wings' from day 1. Every donation matters, small or big, as well, sharing the campaign with friends and family.
Thank you so much for believing in peace, love, music, unity, justice, kindness and better future for all living beings.
Thank you for making it all possible with your continuous help and support.
Please take a min to watch 'Broken Wings' teaser and read about the film mission, as I can still use all the funds and support I can get in completing the rough cut and moving forward to the final editing stages.
Working on the 'Broken Wings' has being the most challenging and life changing experience with many obstacles, set backs and many learning experiences. As you all ready know, this project is so involved. I spent the last few years shooting in L.A, Israel and the West Bank as well, writing and recording it's original music along side with amazing Israeli and Palestinian musicians.
Working with very small budget made the creative process a lot more hard and longer. But, I'm so happy and excited to share that I'm finally working on the rough editing cut and I'm spending long days with my editor and going over notes and changes.
Thank you to all of YOU who contributed to this incredible project so far by donating and sharing the crowd funding with others.
Without YOUR help this wouldn't be possible.
As I moving forward with the project and the rough cut, I still need your help and support with funds so, I can shot pickup shots, edit the final cut, audio mix, the film score and color correction.
Thank you so much for all your help.
I can't wait to share this important film.
Peace and Love
This project truly changed my life and I can't wait to share what I've been working on for the last couple of years and share some incredible life stories of some truly inspiring people, Israelis and Palestinians.
Please continue your support and contribution to this powerful project by donating and sharing the crowd funding and spreading the message of hope, coexistence, non-violence and healing through music. Music that makes a difference and bridge the gap.
Thank you I wouldn't be able to do this without all of your support and love
