16 years-old Inés takes a ride with Seba, Lucía and Marcos and learns that in order to gain perspective, innocence must be lost.

REVOLT

Revolt is the story of Inés, a 16 year-old runaway who joins a trio of rebellious, free-willing college students (Sebastián, Marcos and Lucía) heading to a music festival in the 70's. On the way, and thanks to the presence of the newcomer in their car, these 3 friends' already fragile relationships begin to crumble as jealousy and ideology get in the way.
Through this journey, Inés will experience a series of awakenings, sexual, political and otherwise, and grow from an insecure child to a young woman while facing the disenchantments of youthful hope.

In the end, all these characters have changed, as their relationships begin on the verge of an ending and this trip propels this. However, they come to find that they have reached, not the end of a journey, but the beginning of a new one.

WHY WE WANT TO MAKE THIS FILM?

We are political animals. As an aspiring filmmaker, I don't want to shun away from this fact. I do not talk about turning art into doctrine, but rather being true to ourselves and to the particular ways we experience the world. This is the only thing we have to offer.
Revolt is a story in which I can passionately invest myself as a director. It is smart and subtle, tackling subjects without trivializing, preaching or falling into easy discourses. In the center of it all is Inés, passively observing as she slowly, also experiences change. It is full of nuances that speak both for Inés' awakening and for the other characters' leap into adulthood.

WHERE WILL YOUR MONEY GO?

Revolt is a period piece, and although everyone in our cast and crew is volunteering their talent, time and energy to make Revolt happen, it takes more than manpower and good intentions to make a film. We need to pay, among other things for:

- Vintage Car Rental (5 days)

- Van Rental (3 days)

- Insurance (for cars and for our crew)

- Costumes

- Film Equipment

- Transportation (gas, tolls, and such...)

- Permits to close down local roads.

- Props

- Craft Services (food for our cast and crew)

- Post-Production and Sound

THE REWARDS

We want you take something out of this collaboration, besides our endless thanks and good wishes.

As expected, we want you to watch the film once it is ready, and we're offering it as a digital copy, regular DVD or Special Edition, according to what you decide to pledge.

In addition, we want you to take some souvenir out of this whole experience, be it a copy of the script, production stills, a button/pin, a postcard, a full sized poster of the film or some memorabilia from the "forbidden festival" our main characters are headed to.

REVOLT

Revolt es la historia de Inés, una joven de 16 años que en el Puerto Rico de los 70 se escapa de su casa y se une a tres jóvenes universitarios (Sebastián, Marcos y Lucía) que se dirigen a un festival de música. En el camino, y gracias a la presencia de Inés en el carro, la ya frágil relación de estos tres amigos comienza a desplomarse cuando los celos y la ideología se interponen entre ellos. En el viaje, Inés experimentará una serie de epifanías, sexuales, políticas y demás, y crecerá de ser una niña insegura a una joven mujer que se enfrenta a los desencantos de juventud. 

Al final, estos personajes han cambiado, mientras sus relaciones comienzan al borde del fin y la travesía propulsa esto. Sin embargo, descubren haber llegado, no al final de un viaje, sino al comienzo de uno nuevo. 

¿POR QUÉ QUEREMOS HACER REVOLT? 

Somos animales políticos. Como cineasta en ciernes, no quiero apartarme de este hecho. No hablo de convertir el arte en doctrina, sino de ser fieles a lo que somos y a las maneras particulares en las que experimentamos el mundo. Es lo único que podemos ofrecer. 

Revolt es una historia a la que puedo dedicarme con pasión. Es inteligente y sutil, tocando temas sin trivializar, predicar o caer en discursos fáciles. Al centro de todo está Inés, observando pasivamente mientras ella también experimenta un cambio. Es un guión lleno de matices que hablan del despertar de Inés y del salto a la adultez de los otros personajes. 

¿A DÓNDE IRÁ TU DINERO? 

Revolt es una historia de época, y aunque todo el mundo en nuestro reparto y equipo está ofreciendo su tiempo, talento y energía voluntariamente, el hacer cine conlleva más que fuerza laboral y buenas intenciones. Tenemos que costear, entre otras cosas: 

- Alquiler de un carro antiguo (5 días)

- Alquiler de una “van” (3 días)

- Seguro (para los carros y el “crew”) 

- Vestuarios 

- Equipo de cine 

- Transportación (gasolina, peajes, etc…) 

- Permisos para cerrar carreteras locales

- Utilería - Comida para nuestro equipo de trabajo

- Postproducción y sonido

LAS RECOMPENSAS

Queremos ofrecerles algo a cambio de su ayuda, además de nuestra gratitud eterna y buenos deseos.

Como es de esperarse, queremos que vean la cinta una vez esté lista, y por eso estamos ofreciendo una copia digital, una copia en DVD o una edición especial en DVD, de acuerdo a lo que decidan aportar.

Adicional a esto, queremos que se lleven algún "souvenir" de esta experiencia, ya sea una copia del guión, fotos de la producción, un botón, una postal, un afiche de la película o alguna memorabilia del "festival prohibido" al que se dirigen nuestros personajes.
