All of us from the One Small Visit family are truly grateful for the wonderful partnerships we have formed along this adventure. They really helped bring our creative world together.
Our Amazing Partners
One Small Visit is based on the true adventure of my dear friend Anisha and her parents. When I first heard the story over a decade ago I was completely captivated and instantly fell for these lovely, bold, and badass Indian women. I loved the re-telling of the moon landing, an historical event we all know so well, from this intimate perspective.
Troubled by the growing polarization happening around the world, working on this gave me hope. After researching the 60s in more depth, I realized the parallels between that era's turmoil and today's. I see this tale as a parable for our own divided times.
A Chinese Canadian woman, I’ve been a global nomad most of my life. I’ve always grappled with issues of race, identity, and belonging. With One Small Visit, I wanted to address them in an uplifting way. Ultimately, it’s a story between two very different families finding connection and a shared humanity; a testament to taking leaps of faith and small acts of openness and kindness that make a difference.

One Small Visit is a 30 minute film about the incredible true story of an immigrant Indian family who unexpectedly passes through the tiny Midwest hometown of Neil Armstrong in the wake of the '69 moon landing and the civil rights movement and ends up on the doorstep of the Armstrong home.
excited to make this film.
"I love this story! Vinay and I wanted to support this short film, because it's an inspiring message of hope, possibility and making connections with people who might look different on the outside but are more similar than you might think."
"This is a tale of courage, serendipity, and hope in a time of polarization, exclusion, and violence. I wanted to support this movie because I believe its deep human message needs to be shared by all."
"As a child of Indian immigrant parents, growing up in the 70s and 80s in New Jersey, I constantly felt aware of how we were viewed differently and many times very negatively. I never saw the kindness that was portrayed in this story so it brings me comfort thinking that while I lived through some of the worst discrimination possible, at the same time, there were glimpses of kindness and humanity. It would’ve helped me at the time, as a child, to hear this story and I hope it conveys the feeling of hope for others. "
