We have returned from Paris after a very successful week of filming and research. Where we were allowed into one of Paris’s most famous institutions to film a conversation between Jenny Bowker and Hany Abd el Kader, met with textiles representatives from around the world who are willing to support the film and to help us release it once it is complete and literally thousands of people saw the work of The Tentmakers of Chareh El Khiamiah both in action as Hany stitched and hanging on the walls of the exhibition.
Many of these people were lucky enough to purchase pieces to take with them and hang on their walls at home. One Korean man bought the large birds piece you see to hang in the foyer of his companies headquarters in Seoul. Hany also met many people he was able to talk with befriending taxi drivers, waiters, visitors to the show and even finding a picture of the Khiamiah hanging in our hotel. All up a great trip.
But now comes the final days of the supporter campaign and we cannot afford to fall one supporter short. We have all worked very hard to get to this point, you included, and we are now only days away from taking the film to the next stage of production.
We need to raise approximately $4000 in just eight days to reach our goal of $20,000. If we were to raise more we would be able to start looking at a higher level and quality of production but lets just keep our focus on our initial goal for now. So if you know of people who may be interested in supporting or just interested in this project please let them know about pozible.com/tentmakers
We have achieved so much in such a short time but we can still do so much more. So lets work together to build a great team and to make a great film.
