Kachtick-Anders has been selected for inclusion in the 100-Second Film Festival.
“Love” tells the story of Kachtick-Anders’ journey with her 15-year old son Wyatt. Wyatt has Down Syndrome and has had many triumphs and setbacks in his life, the one constant has been the unconditional love of his mother Tracy.
Kachtick-Anders said, “When I look at my son Wyatt and I think about all that we have been through together, that no one else can really understand, I feel like I could write poetry all day or make 20,000 films about him.”
Kachtick-Anders produced the film as part of a workshop held at Provincetown CommunityTelevision. “Almost ten years ago I made one of those vision boards and I put the word “Showtime” on there because I had this fantasy that I would be a documentary filmmaker. Seven, eight, ten kids later, I realized I would never catch up to all of those with more skills, who are more tech savvy and have more resources and time. But when I saw PTV was offering filmmaking classes and then a chance to enter the 100-Second Film Festival, I figured I could squeeze that into my busy life.”“We are thrilled Tracy was able to make her beautiful tribute to her son Wyatt at PTV. ‘Love’ exemplifies what community media is; an opportunity for people to express themselves freely and creatively and to share the story of their life. Viewing this film is an authentic experience that will stay with you and help you value the precious moments you are given.”, said Amy Davies PTV’s Executive Director.
A screening will take place on October 27, 2018 at 7:30 at Oak Ames Memorial Hall in North Easton, Massachusetts. For more information go to 100-seconds.org PTV is planning a screening in Provincetown for later this fall.
