Over the past year the CBC team has been working to have our award-winning documentary film Eggsploitation translated into Italian. Our translators, Gianfranco Amato and Josephine Quintavalle, are sending me a DVD, and we can’t wait to see it.
Translating the film was a key part of responding to an invitation to show the film at The Meeting for Friendship Among the Peoples in Rimini, Italy, this August. More than 100,000 people are expected to attend the conference, so you can imagine how excited I am to go and show the film there. But I can’t do it without your help.
I’ve been checking on airfare and hotels, and I’m going to need at least $3,350 to cover everything. We’ve setup a campaign on Kickstarter to raise the money. Check out the reward levels — I think we’re offing some pretty good stuff — and hit the “Back This Project” button on Kickstarter.
We’ve done it before and we can do it again, with a little help from our friends.
