BASED ON A TRUE STORY

Jonah was the name of a spirit that director Frank Ferendo and his high school friends communicated with through a Ouija board.


The film is based on this experience and much of that story is script just as it happened.

THE STYLE

"Jonah" is NOT a found footage film. Jonah is a documentary style narrative film, complete with music and montages.


Imagine if a YouTuber compiled his fast paced, highly stylized creatively edited videos into one long form documentary film.


Ash narrates this film from a final edit point, as in "check out what happened this past year."
