“Birds Of Prey” Director Is “Freshening”
“Birds of Prey” helmer Cathy Yan will write and direct an adaptation of Rachel Khong’s short story “The Freshening” for FilmNation Entertainment.
The tale is set in a near-future where tensions over race and gender have reached a violent extreme, the U.S. government institutes a public health initiative known as ‘The Freshening’.
Every American receives an injection, after which everyone only sees others as the same race and gender as themselves. Then a street drug hits the scene promising a chance to see the world as it really is.
FilmNation Entertainment, Ali Wong, Hyperobject Industries/Gary Sanchez Productions, and Rewild are backing the project.
