The Yellow Wallpaper Movie

From writer Charlotte Perkins Gilman and visionary filmmaker and Grammy Nominated artist David Cain, comes the movie, The Yellow Wallpaper, featuring the extraordinary acting talents of Aasne Vigesaa. The DVD and Instant Download/Rental are available at Amazon.com.

Aasne Vigesaa’s spell-binding performance as the narrator of Gilman’s story takes us through an expansive and emotional journey of discovery and evolution as she transcends depression, her overbearing husband and repressive medical practices of her day. The soundtrack features piano music of Chopin, Beethoven (Moonlight Sonata), Grieg and Massenet.

Charlotte Perkins Gilman: “Why I Wrote The Yellow Wallpaper.” When the story first came out, in the New England Magazine about 1891… It was not intended to drive people crazy, but to save people from being driven crazy, and it worked. (excerpt: October 1913 issue of The Forerunner.)
