7 days left to go!
We are over $7000 now with 7 days left to go. This extra week gives us an incredible opportunity to raise more funds for a few more weeks with our wonderful editor Sarah Friedland. (And for those of you who have already afforded us this opportunity - thank you again!)
A little bit about Sarah - she began her career as an editor, working on many projects including the award-winning documentary ‘Free to Fly US/Cuba Link’, by prominent Cuba-based documentarian Estella Bravo and the Emmy nominated film ‘The Life and Times of Frida Kahlo’ by Amy Stechler. Friedland's directorial debut 'Thing With No Name' about a rural community in South Africa plagued by AIDS and it's rebirth with the arrival of treatment has traveled to several festivals.
Together in the past two weeks, we have started working a few scenes from our story. What's even more exciting is that some of our footage comes from a collaboration with one of our characters - Javaid - who was handed a flip video camera by us to document his everyday life in Kashmir through his own eyes. We are thrilled every time we get to work with these precious vignettes combined with our own footage to see scenes that are compelling. We are excited about moving on this front.
