48 hours to go! Barrio Film Fest Flash Prize
Dear supporters of Everything Comes from the Streets,
We are excited to announce that we'll be screening the film at the Barrio Film Fest (http://www.barriofilmfest.com/) in San Diego this Sunday, September 22, with a group of other films from 6-9pm at the Museum of Photographic Art in Balboa Park. We're looking forward to showing the film in San Diego and with the SD lowrider community. After the great response in San Francisco, we can't wait to share this new version of the film. Director Alberto Pulido will also talk a little about the film after the showing.
One of the great things that we think has come out of making the documentary, and connecting with both women and men pioneers of the lowrider movement, is that we've seen more lowriders returning to Chicano Park on Sunday evenings. Some members of one of the original women's car clubs- The Specials- are also back together and back on the streets. These developments show the transformative power of film.
We are working hard to get the film out to a larger audience, with San Diego-flagship KPBS expressing interest in not only airing it locally, but also presenting the film nationally for us. But we only have 48 hours left to raise the money we need to make that possible. We still need to raise a little over $7,000 and are asking for your help to do so. Help us in continuing to spread the word, and ask your friends to kick in as little as $1. We're also offering a FLASH PRIZE to any of our supporters who increase their contribution by $50 -- two tickets to the Barrio Film Festival Sunday showing at the Museum of Photographic Art in Balboa Park!
La raza unida jamas será vencida!
Alberto, Rigo, Kelly and Jessica
