Hello to our entire OF TWO MINDS family...we've had an incredible couple of weeks here, with the film just finishing its New York City run (thank you to NYC folks who came to see it!) and now we're opening TODAY right here in LA, at the Laemmle NoHo 7 Theaters in the amazingly revamped North Hollywood area!
In the last week, we've had amazing press, including a great review in VARIETY, a prime-time story on KPCC-FM here in LA, and a major writeup by LA TIMES senior film critic Kenneth Turan...with more to come. If you're in the LA area and want to see the film on the big screen, with glorious 5.1 sound and a crowd of OF TWO MINDS supporters, come see us this weekend...TWO SHOWS every day, Friday to Thursday, and we'll be there live for the Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Thursday shows to do Q&As ...come say hello!
Here's the official link with times and tickets:
Now that we have our big reviews, we can officially finish the posters here, and we've just received a shipment of books for rewards. Lots more website exclusives, news and more coming when the dust settles!
Thanks again for being a crucial part of this huge boost in awareness of the film and the issues in it. Hope to see you at the movies!

To our Kickstarter extended family,
We are absolutely thrilled to announce that OF TWO MINDS is officially a part of the prestigious DocuWeeks 2012 Showcase, sponsored by the International Documentary Association. The film will now have a FULL WEEK-LONG COMMERCIAL THEATRICAL RELEASE in both New York and Los Angeles in August, at two great theaters!
This is a huge step for the film being seen in the world, and it is absolutely happening because of your amazing support. There will be much more news coming, but for now, we wanted you all to know that you can see the film during these August screenings in a real theatrical experience, with beautifully mastered sound and picture. The links below will take you to the theaters' websites for ticket purchases…if you live near or will be visiting NYC or LA during the film's runs, please come join us and see the movie you helped make happen (and bring your friends and neighbors)! We will be there for the first few days of screenings for both cities, and we hope to see you there!

Meanwhile, we're still finishing gathering all the Kickstarter responses and getting rewards ready to ship out...if you haven't sent your award survey reply, please do, and if you have, hang in there...our tiny but dedicated crew is working to get it all done! The official DVD, as we've said before, will be coming out later this year or early in 2013, and we'll let you know when it's available. Other rewards will be shipping out this summer.
Again, thank you so much for your support, and we are proud to now present the film to a much larger audience...because of you!
Lisa and Doug, OF TWO MINDS
