SUPPORT THE BID FOR OSCAR NOMINATION
"Mexican Suitcase is a 90 minute feature documentary that tells the incredible story of the recovery of 4,500 negatives taken by photographers Robert Capa, Gerda Taro and David Seymour during the Spanish Civil War, with an extraordinary score by composer, Michael Nyman.
My film, The Mexican Suitcase, is part of DOCUWEEKS! This means that after screenings in NY ( this week) and Los Angeles ( next week) we will have accreditation giving us the possibility of being short listed for an Oscar nomination! Our film will be at the IFC cinemas in New York and Laemmle 5 in LA with the other DOCUWEEKS films. Its a very costly process... but this modest, documentary made in Mexico with some support from Spain, has a real chance of getting visibility and making it through the hoops which render so many other independent docs almost invisible to the public. Help us to make this happen!! Help us get our film our there and seen. Its an important story..."
