"A film told through emotions.”
A look through a young woman’s struggles with scoliosis, the emotional scars it leaves on her mind and the power she discerns from finally being seen and feeling understood.
WHITE NOISE is a cinematic, dramatic short film about a female protagonist named Dana who is struggling with chronic pain. Because she is experiencing various symptoms, and doctors take less time to communicate with their patients today, she begins to question her symptoms and whether or not they are psychosomatic... Until one doctor finally takes the time to explain her symptoms to her and their connection to her scoliosis disorder. This gives Dana confidence in herself and the healthcare system again, and the courage to tackle spinal fusion surgery.
Scoliosis is a condition heard about during our youth, but often forgotten, as we grow older. Not many are aware that scoliosis is a lifelong condition that affects 2 - 3 percent of the population, or an estimated six to nine million people in the Unites States.
Scoliosis can be extremely painful and difficult to treat, and typically affects the body's muscles and organs. It is often coupled with low grade conditions of body dysmorphia and, like many other chronic conditions and illnesses, depression.
White Noise is written by and starring Caroline Heinle.
Heinle was diagnosed with scoliosis when she was 15 years old, but decided to hold off on surgery until her adult years, when the pain became too much to bear. Heinle blogged about her surgery at NYU Langone Spine Center and was featured in the NY Post and Daily Mail.
WHITE NOISE is based on this blog and the health struggles that those close to her, have endured.
Heinle is passionate about mental health, addiction prevention, healthy living, embracing our imperfections and the power in human connection.
WHITE NOISE is based on all of these.
