I am afraid to say the time has come for me to ask you for a little help. A film that Judy Estrin and I have been working on over the last 7 years is finally nearing completion. This is the second time I am asking the community for help. The first was for finishing funds for a documentary I shot and co-produced about homelessness, Us and them.
This current film, A 20th Century Passion is about Peter Gary, a Hungarian born composer, who survived 3 death camps under the Nazi regime. In the Early 70’s, Peter wrote an Oratorio, spanning World War 1 to the Nuremburg trials, and includes his experience of living and surviving for over 3 years in 3 separate death camps.
Peter had a message, and that was to stamp out hate. He delivered that message personally to almost 70,00 children all over Canada.
For me this is a passion project. I have not received any sort of payment over this time. But now, I am faced with some very real hard costs to finish the film. This includes more editing time and then there is online, color correction, graphics, sound mix, closed captioning legals and more.
Please support me so that I may finish the feature length documentary, A 20th Century Passion. Any contribution will help bring the film to completion, and with that, the message, stamp out hate.
