Update #2

New clips online and a screening

Comment

Hi all,

Thank you VERY much for supporting this film. There are only 17 days left in the campaign, and it's been a busy few weeks.  

First off, if you are in the NYC area, we're doing a rough cut screening of the film in Park Slope, Brooklyn this coming Saturday, November 12th at 6pm, at The Fifth Estate, 506 5th Avenue.  The event is sponsored by Filmwax, a local screening series. 

Because there are only 17 days left, some folks have actually raised, even doubled, their potential contributions. It's a hard thing to ask, but you might consider raising your contribution too.  OR if you don't want to do that, please share info about the campaign to friends, family and colleagues.  If you reach out to your network, in your own words, that would be an amazingly huge help. 

Also, Sam Feder is now on board as the Producer!  Last update I announced this, but wasn't sure about the title. So I thought I'd clarify ; - )

On another note, I traveled to Portland, OR from last Tuesday to Sunday to attend a conference called Roots of Change which focused on the intersections of social justice and media, hosted by the Oregon Sexual Assault Task Force (SATF). While my film does not address sexual assault, there were a number of people there from organizations that are working to end abuse on a number of levels.  It took a lot of time and energy away from this campaign, which was difficult, but it also allowed me to make connections nationally and learn more about what I can do to be a better man or person, really. 

My friend Laurie recently reminded me that this film is just as much about my son, Noam's development as it is my own. It's pretty wonderful to watch him grow as a young person throughout the film.  So I posted a four-minute clip from the rough cut on the project's main Kickstarter page, mostly dealing with Noam's perspective.

I also posted a video of an interview with "Q" Walcott of CONNECT. Q is a gender violence prevention expert and often works with men and boys as an educator and advocate. Here he talks about the film's impact and how CONNECT has already used the rough cut to great effect in their workshops.

Again thank you very much for backing this project, your support is heart warming and will go a long way to make this film a reality.

Best,

Fivel
