Why does Finding Farideh need a second crowdfunding?
Finding Farideh is made by independandent filmmakers… what does that exactly mean?
Kourosh and Azadeh are independant filmmakers from Iran, this means that they were not hired by a production- or a film company to make this film.
They read about me and read my blog while I was already busy searching for family for almost a year… and thought it would be interesting enough to make a documentary about my first return to Iran and my search for family.
So in the category “Best international feature film” of the Academy Awards, we are competing with block buster films who all have a production company, film company and probably a huge budget for PR.
Fiction or animation films usually have a different start up than a documentary film. As they are meant for commercial use and documentary film it is all about telling the story rather than earning money with it..
The entire crew made Finding Farideh due to LOVE for film making.. due to love for the story.
Now we need to UNITE people around the world who would LOVE to support the Iranian Cinema at the Oscars 2020 in Los Angeles US.
Let us all PROVE that our love for cinema and art is much STRONGER than any sanction, than any rule or regulation made by any country.
ART has no boundaries and art is made from the HEART.
FINDING FARIDEH is made from the heart.
Finding Farideh shows that we are all HUMAN and searching for our own TRUTH in life.
This is for the LOVE of the Iranian people, my heritage, my ancestors and my birth mother and father who live in Iran. I HONOR them in my body & soul.
