 About Rina.
Rina was a 15-year-old filmmaker who dreamed of her movie being on the big screen. She envisioned the premiere, who would be on the invite list and how it would all play out. Despite having advanced stage mitochondrial disease, she never let the disease define who she was. She saw the good in each day and knew what was truly important. She used writing this script as an outlet for her creative process and a way to distract from the intense medical challenges she faced daily. Music was also the way in which her soul spoke. She wanted to produce, direct and write this movie to teach the world about friendship and 3 big messages; “Dream Big, Love life and Be positive.” She intended to educate the world about this disease in hopes of treatment or a cure. Rina kindly, but with a zest for life, never took “No” for an answer when it came to her movie. She will always be in the director’s chair. Anyone who would take on the mission of putting together her creative work into a short and documentary would be guided, each step of the way, by her huge spirit and presence. Even when Rina did not have the physical strength to speak, she always had a voice.
