Financing any film production is a challenge, especially when you're trying to tell OUR stories on sovereign artistic ground. We knew in advance we would meet obstacles financing for our first feature film, Bruising for Besos. But we also believed in our vision and in the generous support of our communities.
This special list represents a small fraction of the Community Producers from our initial Indiegogo campaign effort. They remain listed here because they purchased books through Kórima Press as a way of supporting our campaign OR they answered our request to re-pledge their monies in 2013 through our film's website. They gave us the support to re-launch our efforts in 2014, which became the foundation for our successful AIM/Hatchfund online campaign. Community Producers highlighted in gray purchased a book; blue names pledged $25 or more; and green names pledged $50 or more and are also be listed in the rolling credits for Bruising for Besos with other AIM/Hatchfund donors.
