In The Opposite of a Fairy Tale, a social worker, Celeste, befriends an elderly patient at a nursing home and uncovers America's sordid secret - the all too typical and all too secret world of elder abuse. The script was written by actor and Film Lab President Jennifer Betit Yen,in memory of her grandmother, artist Josephine Chuch Liu Yen, with critical contributions and assistance from writer/director Aaron Woolfolk. The film is being made possible, in part, through a grant from the Asian Women Giving Circle and the Ms Foundation. The film focuses on (1) changing community attitudes about elder abuse, (2) making communities more accepting of survivors, particularly when women are the victims and (3) educating viewers on how to prevent and address elder abuse through easily accessible, entertaining and creative storytelling.
