Freedom from Despair wins another award!
Last night Freedom from Despair won the Best Student Film Award at the Westwood International Film Festival in Los Angeles. This award included a statue and a $2,500 cash prize! That cash prize will definitely go to help pay for the production expenses and to the news stations for the costly rights to the stock footage in the film. To all of you who put your personal interest and heart into the film with me - thank you! I am off to work on raising money for the film in Australia for the next few weeks.
Thank you again for your help and support,
Starring Michael York, John Savage, Beata Pozniak, and Dennis Kucinich, with original score by Nenad Bach
