"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 making an impactful decision.
WHITE NOISE is a cinematic, dramatic short film about a female protagonist named Dana who is struggling with chronic pain. Because Dana is experiencing various symptoms, and doctors take less time with patients today, she begins questioning her symptoms and whether they are psychosomatic. Until one doctor finally takes the time to explain the scoliosis disorder to her, which gives Dana confidence in herself and the healthcare industry again, and the courage to tackle 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 self care, addiction prevention, embracing our imperfections and the power in human connection.
