Join us for a special meeting with a viewing of the newly-released short film, Cookie, both created and produced by Shane Hartline.
This 15-minute film is about a young woman who after losing her voice to a debilitating vocal condition, fights to find it again to pursue her dream of acting. Shane has lived with spasmodic dysphonia since early childhood but it did not stop him from pursuing his goals of acting and now producing and directing. He said, “This is not only loosely my story but also the story of everyone who struggles with spasmodic dysphonia”. Shane hopes it will raise awareness about spasmodic dysphonia, the challenges it presents, and provides hope to those living with a voice condition.
