Well, when it rains it pours.
Today, we can officially declare the premiere date for After the Factory, the documentary we have been working on since last January. In fact, in an odd coincidence, on this day last year I received the first email from Michal in Lodz, which planted the seed for what would eventually be our most ambitious project to date. It started with a quick idea and grew in to a whole operation, attracting an entire crew, spending a month in Europe, crafting an organizational partnership in Poland with Topografie Association, even garnering 163 financial backers via Kickstarter. And now, the film will premiere at a beautiful historical theatre in Detroit.
We are absolutely honored and pumped to announce that the film will premiere at the Detroit Institute of Art’s Detroit Film Theatre on February 2, 2012. 7pm. The info page on the DIA website can be viewed here, and tickets can be purchased here.
All that said, it seems proper to reveal the trailer for the film. Voila:
One step further, please head over to the film’s website (afterthefactoryfilm.com) and hit the “Like” button to help us spread the word to your friends. And please, by all means, join us at the DFT for the premiere. We are so excited.
A special thanks to Steven Oliver and Andrew Jenson, the director of photography and editor for the film, respectively. Without these two gentleman, the film would not be here. They believed in it from day one, and have been an instrumental part of making it the work of art that it is.
