About this project
Become a part of WHERE GOD LIKES TO BE!
The documentary film WHERE GOD LIKES TO BE portrays what it means to be Native American today – taking a personal, cinematic and lyrical journey into the heart of the Blackfeet Indian reservation. The film follows three young protagonists, Andrea Running Wolf, Edward Tailfeathers and Douglas Fitzgerald over the course of one summer as they decide if they want to leave the reservation to attend University or if they want to stay and live with the hardships of their home.
With this film we hope to break down stereotypes and transform conventional views of the reservation showing it as the spectacular home of a great and openhearted group of people who do their best to survive in and identify with a country that has tried to strip them of their identity.
For us this is the final stretch of the film! We need your help to finish it and bring it to the people we made it for: The community on the Blackfeet Reservation.
All donations will be used to pay for travel expenses to the Big Sky Documentary Film Festival so that our protagonists Andi, Doug and Eddie, their families and the film crew can attend the premiere of WHERE GOD LIKES TO BE on the 22nd of February. We will be paying for the sound mix and color correction to prepare our film for the big screen and we also need to gather some funds to do the most important thing to us: Put on a big screening on the Blackfeet reservation, free and open to the public so everyone can attend.
We have been working on WHERE GOD LIKES TO BE since 2009. What was once an idea during a snowstorm in 2001 will now premiere, 13 years later not far from where we first thought of it. On our way to completing this film we have had numerous kind people help us, just out of the goodness of their hearts and because they believed in our vision. We have had the support of the wonderful people on the Blackfeet reservation who shared their stories with us and allowed us into their lives making this a one of a kind group effort and an accomplishment we all share.

We have had some great coverage in the Missoulian!
We are very excited to have Berlin-based artist Timothy Armstrong to hand draw our theatrical poster for us. Tim’s work is known for its complexity and detail – and he can do it all: Capturing the beauty of the reservation on paper as well as loud and colorful drawings like his latest commission for Lady Gaga whose portrait he drew to celebrate the release of her latest record in Berlin. As our Kickstarter campaign runs we’ll provide you with updates on how the poster is coming along and where Tim is at with this one-of-a-kind artwork. The final product is one of the very special rewards of the campaign!

Risks and challenges
Risks and challenges… we have had many of those on our journey of making this film! Our most current challenge is TIME! We are running out of it! Our premiere is on the 22nd of February and we are working hard on getting everything ready for the big day - and on getting our protagonists and their families to join us for a celebration of all the hard work they put into the film as well. We have no doubt in our minds that we will deliver all the rewards we are offering - unless something happens to Tim before he finishes the beautiful drawing of the poster. Let's all hope that does not happen!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
That is a good question and there has been some confusion about the delivery date set by Kickstarter. So: Because the campaign does not end until March we could not set the delivery date of the tickets to February. This is just a technicality. Rest assured: If you choose the $25 ticket reward you will absolutely get your ticket before the premiere on the 22nd of February at the Wilma Theatre in Missoula!
