You may have noticed that I’ve been a little quiet on the blog front recently. As you’ve probably guessed, running the crowd-funding campaign was an all-encompassing experience – for 90 exhilarating, exhausting, inspiring days, IndieGoGo took over my life. Thanks to the generosity of over 300 donors from around the world, we managed to exceed our target, and raised $55,100.
As the Occupy Movement spread to almost 1000 cities, and I accompanied Alice to the Russell Tribunal on Palestine in Cape town, I reflected on the role of the arts in social justice movements past, present and future. I started a newsletter to share these thoughts and keep supporters of the film informed of the latest developments in the campaign. Here are a few of the newsletters if you’d like to catch up on what I’ve been up to.
