At this time last year I was just rejected from Sundance and Slamdance film festival. Before I submitted to those festivals I had a lot of people telling me I would get in, make a ton of money, and live happily ever after. I always listen. I actually thought the film would do something positive. I had huge plans, and then REJECTION.
I struggled with this film for the past year, cutting, re-editing, trying to make it work. I tried to make the film “commercial”, but how can I make a documentary on something that controversial and underground commercial?
I spoke with Nick, the editor who I worked with for hundreds of hours on this film. When he read what was written he said he was proud to have someone see the film for what it was meant to be. As the director and editor we want the viewer to watch the film and make up their own mind about prostitution and the situation in Rhode Island.
I feel with the words written on Kmareka, I have truely accomplished what I set out to do. Now all I have to do is find a way to distribution so people will actually be able to see the film.
