This feature-length documentary has been self-financed but supported by a great co-producer in the UK, Brian Woods of Truevision who has won 9 BAFTAS in the past 9 years fro Best Documentary. The passion Vivian and Gloria feel for this project has kept them going on this since their meeting in 2009. Both Vivian and Gloria have published articles on Stanley Ann Dunham. Vivian's articles can be found on the Huffington Post at this site: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/vivian-norris-de-montaigu/
Friends, colleagues and others who knew and were close to Obama's mother are interviewed. We need to pay for the last interviews and buying archives as well as for editing, titles, sound and animation. We wish to complete the project to apply for festivals by the end of summer 2013.
Risks and challenges
We wish to get the documentary into major doc and film festivals around the world and sell to international markets for television and cinema distribution and create an educational campaign.
This will mean a lot of sweat equity on our part and we need to finish by the end of August 2013 which means full time working from now until then, including evenings and weekends.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
