Want to help us make this documentary film available? One simple way to support this project is to contribute to our project funds. We have yet to meet our entire fundraising goal of $5000. Now that post-production is complete, additional funds will help us get the documentary out to broad audiences–our ultimate goal!
By giving a little yourself and/or getting the word out about the film to folks that you know, you can help us share this work.
We have been able to finance this film through community support and out of pocket. Individuals have donated as little as $5.50 to cover the cost of 1 gallon of gas on our journey in the Dominican Republic or $15 per day to cover our insurance for our final 7-days trip. Others were able to give $100 or $200 to help move our project forward–and it has made all the difference in the world!
Currently, we have a beautiful documentary film and we are raising funds get it out to film festival screenings and introduce our film to audiences everywhere. Our first screening was in Havana, Cuba, May 19th, 2015. Then, a week later we screened a draft of the film in New Orleans for the Caribbean Studies Association.
Your financial support is what has made this film possible. Now you can encourage your local library to buy a copy of the film, or purchase a copy and host a public screening. Why not contribute to the work of telling this history and these contemporary cimarrón cultural practices in the Dominican Republic today?
