We attended a wonderful presentation the other night for “the last film festival”. The director, linda yellen put together an amazing cast and crew to tell this story.
Now nearing the fifth anniversary of Dennis’ death, they would like to release the film to the public. They started a kick starter campaign to help with post production:
“the last film festival” finds hopper starring alongside jacqueline bisset, joseph cross, jobeth williams, donnell rawlings, chris kattan and leelee sobieski.
here are some links to the press coverage:
You can donate anything from $1 to $10,000 (which would get your name in lights as a co-producer of the film and credits in IMDB)
come on…. you know you are imagining your name in the film credits right now!
If you saw the exhibition at the Met, you might feel as I do… that you need to see it again and again. There was so much to take in… it was the most inspiring, beautiful exhibition I’ve ever seen. If you find yourself in London soon, it’s on at the V&A from the 14th march – 2 august 2015
here are some images from the exhibit when it was in NY
