Takeshi Fukunaga & Co-Producer, Donari Braxton Television Productions
Join the Out of My Hand production team for a Kickstarter campaign fundraiser reception to raise completion funds for the film which chronicles the journey of a struggling Liberian rubber plantation worker who risks family, hearth and home, to discover a new life as a Yellow Cab driver in New York City.
This project's gone beyond the makings of just another independent movie. It's also in line with a movement in Liberia to grow and expand its arts communities, one that has immense possibilities to bring positive influence to the country, to its movie industry, and to its aspiring filmmakers.
The Philly event will feature Q&A with director, footage from the Liberia shoot and cocktail reception.
