Short Film: "A Mother's Sacrifice" To Be Filmed In Pana

A short film titled “A Mother’s Sacrifice” looks to begin filming in the City of Pana, with screenwriter, director, and cinematographer, Katlin Davis, a Pana native. 

The film is set in the 1700s and tells the story of a group of witches whose way of life is under attack. The Head Priestess and her daughter are tasked with casting a difficult spell to save the coven and transfer the generational powers to the next generation.

The final step to produce “A Mother’s Sacrifice” is funding. Davis says crowdfunding efforts have brought the most recent tally up to 50% of the money needed.


Davis speaks on what motivated her to begin this film and the reasons for choosing topics that delve into power dynamics between generations.


The costume, setting, and sound design are all handled by professionals that Davis selected to present the proper tone and emotion to support the unique nature of the film.


To help “A Mother’s Sacrifice” reach its goal of $10,000 the community is invited to visit seedandspark.com/fund/a-mothers-sacrifice#story, here interested individuals can select the amount of the donation and even an incentive aspect that gives donors opportunities to be involved in the film.

Katlin Davis appeared as a guest on the WTIM Morning Show live from the lobby of Peoples Bank and Trust in Downtown Pana.
