It's been a while since our last update but I can tell you that this will surely be worth the wait.
Since its World Premiere back in February, United in Anger has shown at over 25 amazing venues all around the world (check out our blog for more info and photos). Thanks to you and others like you, United in Anger is able to reach audiences on a global level. So thank you, truly, from the bottom of our hearts.
The mission of United in Anger is not only to record and disseminate the history of ACT UP, but also to bring attention to the efforts of those who died. After every screening, audience members approach me to extend their congratulations to tell their own stories and to offer gratitude. Some lived through the worst of the AIDS crisis and lost many friends, while others are too young to know what Kaposi’s Sarcoma really looks like. From the film's inception, my goal was to portray ACT UP in ways that would help younger generations understand the actions and motivations of ACT UP and I am extremely gratified by the positive response United in Anger has received thus far from people under Thirty.
I know many of you are patiently waiting for your own copy of the film, so I’m pleased to inform you that the Limited Edition Kickstarter DVDs of United in Anger are in their final stages of production. They will be delivered to our office next week and once they are, our main priority will be to send them out as quickly as we can. I'll be sure to post another update before we send them out, along with some photos of the finished product. The posters are fresh from the printers and I've already signed a bunch of those as you can see from the attached photo. If you are receiving a poster at the $25 level, your incentive will ship early next week. For those in the $200 category, your posters will arrive along with your other DVDs in a few weeks.
Be sure to keep an eye out for the next update in the coming weeks. And thank you for helping us put United in Anger into the world.
