Our AFI Festival screening was a great success. Despite disastrous online ticketing (apologies to all who were discouraged) over 700 people came to see AMIGO on the big screen at Grauman's Chinese Theater. Thanks to AFI Festival for inviting us and to the projectionist (hooray!) for beautiful projection.
We are turning some new corner. Instead of hearing about the dismal prospects for making money, we hear that AMIGO is beautiful and important and a good story. "Like MATEWAN" which will mean something to you oldtimers out there.
Thanks to Winston and Cate for all their help. And thank you all for coming. Keep the buzz building.
I'll get some photos up soon.
