“Who Is Albizu Campos?” Film Launches Kickstarter Campaign to Complete Production

We have always asked ourselves, "When will a film about Pedro Albizu Campos be produced?" It looks like the answer is on YouTube and Kickstarter.

Filmmaker Michael Torres has spent the last seven years gathering footage for "Who Is Albizu Campos?" and he is in the final leg of production. Now, Torres has launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise the final $27,000 to get this film completed. We think that this campaign is so important, that we are supporting it 100%. Here is a trailer of what Torres has to say about the film:

A feature length documentary on Puerto Rican revolutionary Pedro Albizu Campos.

How Your Contributions Will Be Used

The funds raised from this campaign will go directly to the final stage of production in which we will create the visual style of the film by assembling a team to produce the animated sequences of the film. These funds will also contribute to the editing of the film which begins when I return from Puerto Rico in December. Our goal is to raise $27,000 by midnight October 9th. Kickstarter only works if we reach our goal—If we don't hit our target, we don't get any of the money. Even $5 helps!
