"From My Mind to Yours" Dance Poem project:
For our first audience-interactive Indie Doorway initiative, we’re inviting our audience members to send us original poems about their mental health. We will then hire actors to read the poems aloud, musicians to compose to them, and dancers to choreograph performances to the poems. We hope this can be a positive healing experience for voices to be heard and expressed creatively and collaboratively. Expressing our emotions through artistic mediums can be a healing force!
Indie Doorway "Indie Moon" Interview Series:
Interviews with artists, activists, and mental health professionals about what has influenced their mental health, their lives, and their work. When we stop to examine the subtle and not-so-subtle forces that influence our health, we are empowered to decide what we want to let into our lives, what we want to distance ourselves from, and also become more aware of the power we all have to influence others. Interview series inspired by the Nikola Tesla quote "how subtle are the influences that shape our destinies".
Healer's MasterClass Series:
Clear, helpful, to the point explanations of varying kinds of mental and physical health conditions & challenges- and practical tools and tips to help the people living with them and their loved ones. Designed for lay people wanting to understand more about science, medicine, and the human body. Brought to you by charismatic & caring health professionals from across the globe.

Inspiring Indie Films
A growing collection of social issue films from South Korea, the United States, and other countries across the globe. We're creating English subtitles for Korean indie films that have never been translated before- and Korean subtitles for films that currently only exist in English. We will also be branching out to other languages upon request.
Why watch indie films for mental health healing?
Our environment inevitably affects our mental health- both our social environment via interactions with other people, as well as our physical environment and relationship to the earth.
Mental-emotional wellbeing is not just about healing the wounds from the past- it’s also about creating a better world in which to live the future! Independent filmmakers can help shed light on social and environmental issues that can help us heal ourselves and the world around us.
A documentary film nearly a decade in the making, "Permission to Exist" explores how the pressure on South Korean teenagers to adhere to society's strict standards of success affects their mental health. Whether it be getting into the perfect college, or getting cosmetic surgery to achieve the perfect look- how does the pressure society puts on young people affect them in this critical, formative time of their lives? "Permission to Exist" follows four teenagers as they prepare for the Korean College Entrance Exam and life after high school, in this gripping coming-of-age story about self-worth and finding purpose.
A documentary film tackles one of the most unfathomable issues of our time; suicide. Opening the conversation to reduce the shame and silence.
THE S WORD is a powerful feature documentary that puts a human face on a topic that has long been stigmatized and buried with the lives it has claimed. The film gives a platform to those with lived experience - people who have attempted to take their own lives and survived to tell their stories. These are the voices that have been silenced for so long and their stories could save lives. Capturing personal revelations and surprising moments of humor, THE S WORD opens a door on this most taboo of subjects through the eyes of the people who have been there and are now committed to preventing others from getting to that edge.
