Nekisa Cooper's critically acclaimed Pariah will be released in theaters this fall and will also screen at the Toronto Film Festival next month. However, Cooper has another project she's currently concentrating on along with cinematographer Bradford Young (Mississippi Damned, Restless City, Pariah, Middle of Nowhere) called Five Nights in Maine.

Written and directed by Maris Curran, Five Nights in Maine was accepted to the IFP’s 2011 Project Forum, which Tambay announced in this post. With nine days to go, the film has raised $17,235 of the $40,000 goal. To contribute visit their Kickstarter page HERE. Here's the full synopsis:

Sherwin and Fiona are at a crossroads. As an interracial couple living in the south, they seem to have created an idyllic bubble for their love. But after a recent visit to her ailing and prickly mother, Fiona is changed. Suddenly, their relationship is contentious and with no explanation, she announces she does not want to have kids.

And then, she is gone. After tragically losing Fiona to a car accident, Sherwin is overwhelmed with grief and guilt. When a call comes from his estranged mother-in-law, Lucinda, inviting him to visit her in Maine, he is shocked, but desperate for answers and hope. Sherwin accepts Lucinda’s invitation to the place where Fiona grew up, and embarks on a path toward healing.

Here's the Kickstarter trailer:
