Dear Friends and Fellow Resisters,
We’re writing to share some good news with you – and a request!
The good news is, thanks to your support, director Judith Ehrlich is in the studio now with our chief editor working to craft a 90 minute rough cut from the many hours of interviews, archival footage, and music.
We are also excited because as part of our research for the film we found that reputable scholars concluded draft resistance had a significant impact – causing the collapse of the draft system and was a big factor in ending the Vietnam War.
With a broad “resistance” movement growing once again, telling this story on film is more important than we imagined when we first started production. If nonviolent resistance could stop a powerful military from carrying out an unjust war, imagine what nonviolent activists today can do!
There’s also some good news on the fundraising front. We were recently awarded a $75,000 grant! This is our biggest single contribution to date, and solid confirmation that the film is an important and timely one.
While that grant moves us closer to completing the flm, creating a high-quality documentary film requires substantial funding, especially in the last phases of production. The expenses alone associated with securing necessary rights and insurance are projected to be $88,000.
Thanks to you and 800 others, we have raised the majority of our budget – over $300,000. Now, to finish the film and begin distributing it we need to raise a final $200,000. We know we can get there!
Here’s our request of you:
In this last critical year of production, please consider making
a significant contribution to help us complete the film.
Can we count on you?
We are very grateful for your support to date! We could not have gotten this far without you.
On behalf of the BOYS film team, thank you again for your generous support — both your dollars and your far-reaching vision!
For peace, justice and equality,
Christopher Jones, Producer
Bill Prince, MD, Co-Producer
