About this project
Help produce the latest audiovisual artwork by Filastine
Requiem is a funeral procession for the paradigm of materialism, a swan song for a ravaged planet, a warning of a possible dark future if we continue to prioritize wealth at the expense of life.
Requiem is shot in the style of a disorientalist gothic western. Graveyards are innately gothic. Cinephiles will recognize the influence of Sergio Leone. The setting is neither the east nor west, heaven or hell, but a purgatory, a crack in geography.
We filmed in two cities of the dead: Cairo's squatted necropolis and the tower block tombs of Montjuic in Barcelona. These were difficult places to work, so we didn't risk fundraising until we finished the shooting. We are ready to edit and need your help to cover the filming debts and move forward with post-production.
Although we've been super-efficient (nearly all the labour is volunteered) this fundraiser is to cover the unavoidable fixed costs such as transport, food, bribes, burnables & equipment rental. The true production cost is far higher than this campaign's goal, so please don't hesitate to give beyond the goal. Donors will be the first to get the new EP featuring Requiem and three more new tracks.
Please SHARE THIS around the interweb. Huge thanks for your help!
Risks and challenges
Our director of photography was arrested during production, he was blindfolded and interrogated for twelve hours by the Egyptian army. We were also burned by emergency flares, punctured by cactus and chased by police. Despite these challenges we have all the footage. Any questions? We'll respond in the FAQ section.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
