Hello uncivilised friends…
“Earth is our body, as water’s our blood” – Carrie Tree, Water Song
I took a moment on wednesday morning, Earth Day 22 April 2015, to connect with the reasons behind us making this film: our home, this beautiful earth, and future life. I listened to Carrie Tree’s Water Song, which features on the soundtrack for wetheuncivilised, A Life Story, and allowed the tears to come… I invite you to take a moment to be touched by her exquisite yet powerful lyrics.
This film project is all-consuming for Pete and I, and sometimes overwhelming, but at times like these, I know more than ever, that this is what we’re meant to be doing.
It seems fitting also, to update you once more on the campaign, as the roots of our film continue to grow in an expanding community.
We’re just over half way through with 29 days left to go. You’ve helped to raise 74% of our funding goal with £4,520 ($6,758) pledged. So thank you for your ongoing support.
We still have £1415 ($2115) to raise. As you know, we won’t get any funding unless we reach 100%. our So please continue to share with all your networks. We can’t finish the film without your help.
We’ve appointed a tour manager to help us plan the summer tour. If you’d like to arrange a screening for your community, please get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org.
We want to offer as many screenings as we can as we travel across the country, and will do our best to reach you.
