I made a film
You’ll never see it, unless…
You have spent years making your film, you dream to distribute your beloved “kid” in the movie theaters, you want to raise awareness and eventually change the world, but the best that can happen is that you are selected by some festivals and then screen your film in your city’s theatre and nowhere else. This could have been my case. My film, The Perfect Circle, shot in a hospice for terminally ill persons, “is the kind of film that no one would like to see”, said a theatrical distributor justifying his rejection. But I knew there was an audience out there. So, I reached it out and the film has been travelling for two years from city to city. A one woman band, a computer, an internet connection and a great passion for writing can take a film where no one could imagine.
