ABOUT THE PROJECT:
Stringline Pictures had the wonderful opportunity to collaborate with Silker Studios and Brauer Productions on a Messenger Films independent feature film. Produced by David Yates and written, directed and starring Cristóbal Krusen. Stringline coordinated crew and equipment across multiple locations and production days throughout Minnesota to assist in the completion of the principal photography.
Messenger Films was founded by Cristóbal Krusen in 1988. Messenger Films seeks to reach a global audience of “spiritual seekers” through films of beauty, stories of hope.
About the film: Informed that his son, Benny, has recovered from schizophrenia, Ben Whitmore Sr. travels to Middlemouth Security Hospital to bring Benny home, only to discover he’s nowhere to be found.
This is the storyline of Let Me Have My Son, a semi-autobiographical, emotion-laden tale of a father coming to grips with his son’s devastating mental illness. The topic could not be timelier; the National Institute of Mental Health reports that fully 1 out of 5 of our nation’s children now suffer from debilitating mental disorders.
Let Me Have My Son is an ultimately hopeful postscript to the writer-director Cristóbal Krusen’s compelling journey with his firstborn son, Daniel, as told in the book of the same title, published in 2007.
“The poignant and powerful cry of a father who refuses to abandon hope when all hope is gone. Krusen inspires with honest transparency.”
– Robert Whitlow
