As faithful supporters of Incident in New Baghdad, I wanted you all to be the first to know: minutes ago, I just launched a new Kickstarter campaign for my latest project SILENCED, a feature documentary about the unprecedented crackdown on whistleblowers in Washington DC.
My new film follows the deeply personal struggles of people working within the national security establishment—at the CIA, the National Security Agency, and the State and Justice Departments—who, like Ethan McCord in Incident in New Baghdad, have decided to speak out about questionable official policies, and have endured harsh consequences.
Since all of you were so instrumental in the incredible success of the IINB crowdsourcing campaign, I wanted to give you a first look at the new SILENCED Kickstarter page right here:
I would really like to have a strong showing right out of the gate! And while I know it will be hard to match the astonishing 36-hour sprint to success of my last Kickstarter, I am hoping that many of you will be inspired to support my new documentary early in the campaign. The subject—the erosion of civil liberties in post-9/11 America—could not be more timely and relevant.
Thank you so much for reading this, and please, if you have any suggestions or feedback, do let me know. I love hearing from backers!
