INDIEWIRE | Project of the Day: 'Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch'

Here's your daily dose of an indie film in progress -- at the end of the week, you'll have the chance to vote for your favorite.

About the Film: I was inspired by the women I knew growing up. The strong, tenacious, Texas-bred women like my mother or aunts or grandmother. I remember sitting around an old record player listening to classic soul, blues, and funk. As a child, it was my absolute favorite and these women were my heroes. One in nine elderly Americans have Alzheimer’s disease. Of those, almost two-thirds are women. Our Mothers. Our Aunts. Our Sisters. Our Friends. Recently, I asked myself -- what would it feel like to watch those women fade away? "Sugar Pie, Honey Bunch" is the answer to that question.
