It's the year 2592. The planet has been cleaned up, nature is thriving, and human societies are free of violence, greed, and exploitation. When a physics experiment goes awry, Edna ends up stranded in the year 2014. She assumes that all people are caring, honest and generous, as she tries to recruit help to get her back home.
The Great Despair, a feature-length science-fiction comedy, written & directed by Ela Thier, is filming this summer, July 2014.
Given the depth and breadth of the talent that we have on board, in front of the camera and behind the scenes, we can make a micro-budget film look like a million bucks. But we need to raise this minimal amount to cover basic expenses that can't be avoided.
In supporting this film, you are bolstering a life-time of films by Ela Thier, and an entire community of filmmakers, who are dedicated to inspiring and empowering the transition from a society that is organized around profits, to one that is organized around human needs.
Backers donating $100 or more are invited to participate with a guest in four of Ela Thier's first-ever online seminars on filmmaking and creativity. Online seminars are open to backers only. Click here for details.
