SNEAK PEEK of She's Beautiful When She's Angry !


Dear Friends and Supporters of She's Beautiful,

Here’s the good news!    We are setting up the one week online access for all KS donors who gave us $20 and more!!!    Beginning on Wednesday, July 2 !!!   Details below. 

As you know, She’s Beautiful When She’s Angry is finally finished and starting on its festival run. Thanks to you, the film was able to premiere at Sarasota Film Festival as part of the UN's Women's "Through Women's Eyes" programming. The film won the Audience Award for Best Documentary at the International Film Festival in Boston.  None of this would have happened without your support. 

However, until we raise considerably more money, we can’t do the official release of the film -- that means NO digital downloads, DVDs, or theatrical showings. We need to pay for all the archival and music rights before we can distribute outside of film festivals. That's our big all-out effort right now, so that we can show the film in theaters this fall. We have several great leads on potential funders, so are very hopeful that we can get this done soon! 

For all donors who contributed $20 or more: 

You've all been extraordinarily patient.  Since we can't sent out DVD's yet, we're hoping that this sneak peek will be an opportunity for you to not only see the film, but also help us spread the word about the wider release later this year. After we clear the rights, we will of course send out DVD's and down-loadable versions for those who requested them. 

We have set up a limited one-week period where you can preview the whole film online. We will send you an email on July 2nd with a password protected link. The password will be active for just one full week, from Wednesday July 2nd through Tuesday night July 8th. Again, it is online viewing only and not for download at this moment. It is very important that you do not share the link as this could create major legal issues regarding the music and archival footage. Since you trusted us with your funds to make the film, we trust that you will keep the integrity of the film's distribution intact by not circulating this confidential information. 

And please let us know what you think when you check out the film from Wednesday July 2 through Tuesday July 8.  It's your film too!! 

 Many, many thanks!! 

 Mary, Nancy, and the She's Beautiful Team
