Love and Loss

Five Nights in Maine is an intimate film about love, compassion and redemption, written and directed by Maris Curran and released to critical acclaim in 2016.

An independent filmmaker and producer in the Bay Area, Maris Curran had written a compelling, multi-layered script about an interracial couple beset by tragedy and its aftermath. However, to move forward with filming, Maris needed critical funding and recognition for her project, which is where M3D came in.
