We started this project, Triumph67, well over a year ago with some money raised from a few family, friends, and personal funds, and we can push on through to completion in the next two months with your help. We are asking you join us in this last stretch of production as we finish post-production (sound, music, color), and then send the finished film out to festivals and the great wide world!

About T67 London, 1987: the Super8 camera of fifteen-year-old Mohannad Aziz has captured the idyllic summer romance between his handsome older brother Sami and Flora, a lovely American student. Seventeen years later, much has changed. Mohannad has achieved prominence as a radio journalist while Sami's photography career hasn't quite taken off. As for Flora? She now seems to be just a face in a photograph. Then -- in the aftermath of Sami's death, Mohannad finds the past is closer than he guesses, and that its secrets rarely remain hidden. Conflicted memories of his beloved brother vie uneasily with his still-potent attraction to Flora — who herself must come to terms with long-buried resentments — and Mohannad must grapple with the past, the present and his own secrets from that long ago summer.

This Minnesota-made feature drama not only shows Arab-Americans in a normal and positive light, it is a unique collaboration between a Palestinian-American producer and a Jewish director.

Funds Monies raised will be used to cover expenses in editing (time, storage, media), color grading (time), sound editing (time, composing), and final production (Blu-Ray, DVD, posters, packaging, marketing, web).

Status While we continue to move ahead with finishing, we have begun the festival submission process and we are seeking final input via a work-in-progress screening of T67 on October 24th, 2010, at the Flyway Film Festival in Pepin & Stockholm, Wisconsin.
