Christine Giorgio and myself are using Kickstarter to raise development money for FOUR, a feature film based on Pulitzer Prize-nominated playwright Christopher Shinn's play. Shinn's first major theatrical production, FOUR, premiered at the Royal Court Theater in London in 1998.
On the Fourth of July in Hartford, June, a sixteen-year-old white boy, meets up with a closeted, married black man he's met over the Internet. On the same night, in the same city, this man's sixteen-year-old daughter agrees to go out with Dexter, a twenty-year-old low-level drug dealer. In and around the city, on the American night of independence, these two couples get to know each other, moving from strangers to intimates. In lonely landscapes of movie theatres, fast food restaurants, darkened churches and public parks, they discover the limits of desire and the possibilities for transcendence.
We have asked some exciting names in visual art to donate photographs or prints as awards for backing our film. These artists include Allen Frame, Bill Costa, Brett Bell, Tema Stauffer and Hugo Fernandes, each of whom have had major exhibitions internationally and have generously agreed to donate their work to our project. These are limited edition artist's prints, signed and dated by the artist. This is a unique opportunity not only to be a part of a compelling and provocative feature film project, but you're also getting something totally unique for your money that is tangible — a piece of art you can put on your wall, or collect.
We hope to shoot FOUR in the summer of 2010 in Hartford, Connecticut.
— Joshua Sanchez, Writer/Director, FOUR (based on the play by Christopher Shinn)
