The Antidote of Life

Fundraising Campaign For “Heroic” Film ‘The Antidote Of Life’

April 22, 2014 | Sergio, Indiewire.com

Filmmaker [CA+S MFA Candidate] Olayinka Hassan who is currently a screenwriting and directing graduate student at Columbia College Chicago, and who will be graduating next month is currently in the process of completing her film The Antidote of Life.

The film deals with a successful, overworked mother who “learns that, without her family's love and support, money holds no value, as she rebuilds her relationship with her child and aunt." It was inspired by the fact that, as Ms. Hassan herself says, "women, especially Black women can be heroes too," and that she "was tired of seeing films that mainly focus on the men being the hero."
