WHAT IT IS

This is an experimental, non-linear, feature length film, written, produced, shot and directed by a collective of women.

The story is relayed through sequences of color, texture, movement, and landscapes, conjuring both the ceremonious and the humorous.  There are wild tribes who embody the essences of the strange, of the mystical, of the psychedelic. 

Both the content and the form of the film reflect an exploration of feminine wisdom and divinity, in an attempt to shift the paradigm of traditional mainstream filmmaking.


WHAT WE ARE LOOKING FOR

Filmed over two months in the dry desert landscapes of Western Texas, we have 18 hours of stunning footage, and are now looking for funding to turn it into a cohesive finished film. 

WHAT WE WILL USE THE FUNDS FOR

The visionary editors at Civil Editors (www.sivileditorler.com) in Istanbul are willing to collaborate with us at a heavily reduced rate for the 3 weeks it will take to finish the film. ($15,000)

STRETCH GOAL

If we raise anything beyond the bare 15k needed to finish the edit, we will put it toward the $3,000 needed for the final sound and color mixes.

Risks and challenges

When working with as large a collective as ours, it is often a challenge for any one person to take control. However, we have found a very communicative, generous way of working through that problem by delegating different tasks in the finishing process to eachother.

We have already been accepted to the 2015 Marfa Film festival as well as the Bend Film Festival, RXSM in Austin and the Victoria Texas Independent Film Festival, but obviously we hope to be invited to others. If not, we will distribute the film by other, more populist means.

All the prizes will be finished by March, so fulfillment won't be a problem, but if any delays should arise, we will be in close contact with the incredible people who will have helped us make this dream project a reality.
