FEAR OF RAIN Film is a powerful medium not only to entertain but to educate and empower. In ‘Fear of Rain’, director Castille Landon does all three through the specific mental health lens of schizophrenia. In this film, a girl living with schizophrenia struggles with terrifying hallucinations as she begins to suspect her neighbor has kidnapped a child. The only person who believes her is Caleb - a boy she isn't even sure exists.

To be trapped in your mind unsure of what’s real and what’s not is a nightmares for some.

For others, it’s a reality that this film brilliantly portrays.
