Dear Friends & Supporters,
We’re getting close! The BOYS! are coming!
Our Film Team recently viewed and provided input on a 90+ minute cut (down from 2 hours and previously 4 hours). We are bursting with excitement and pride about the film we hope to share soon with you and the world.
We’re also expecting to hear any day now from Independent Lens which is actively considering the film for nationwide broadcast on PBS.
As one of the 800+ supporters who have gone on this adventure with us, you are an essential partner in creating an inspiring film that will tell a historic, untold story. In other words, we couldn’t do this without you! And once you see it you’ll be proud, too.
Our two primary goals now are to create an 86 minute Fine Cut of the film, and to raise the funds to acquire the essential, but costly, archival footage, photos and music that our archivist Blanche Chase has discovered.
Our team has also been busy organizing three November Preview Events that will provide you an opportunity to view the 30 minute opening segment of the film (Act 1) and contribute funds needed to complete the film. Details below.
