Salted Rose Studios invites you to share your story on camera for TUNED, a community-sourced documentary film about music and mental health. We want to put a mic on your voice to raise the volume on mental health awareness. TUNED will investigate how the gentle, simple, and yet dynamic influence of music can contribute to emotional health. When you arrive at eTown Hall, you’ll be checked in and guided to the main theater for your interview. You can expect a 5-10 minute intimate conversation in an empty theater with only the director, a production assistant, and a two-person camera crew. For more information and to RSVP, please visit: tuned.splashthat.com
Mariel Polifroni often tells people that her life didn’t fully begin until she was 22 years old. After a childhood consisting of over 25 different prescribed psychiatric medications to treat over eight inaccurate mental illness diagnoses, she found a way to wean herself off all medications and retune her brain with an undersung remedy: music. Eleven years later, and now a filmmaker based in Boulder, Mariel is sharing her story publicly while elevating others’ experiences for a new documentary about music and mental health.
