Nancy Bechtol's first feature documentary for release FALL 2012.
"Free Speech & the Transcendent Journey of Chris Drew, Street Artist"
Chris Drew,Street Artist sells Art for $1 in Chicago-Loop charged with Class1 Felony Eavesdropping.SURPRISING Constitutional Challenge
Nearing completion after 4 years, will be released Fall, 2012. The feature will be 88 minutes. An amazing journey and an educational experience of transcendence that few see in their lifetime. A story of Free Speech, Constitutional Law, Liberty, and the major determination of a Street Artist, Chris Drew, who was fearless in defending his and everyone's rights. I walked part of this journey with Chris Drew as his primary documentarian at his request, along with the crew, Ron Grenko and Hermann Wieland. Immense respect for his pro-bono attorneys, Mark Weinberg and Joshua Kutnick, who defended him during the 2.5 years in court, which ended with a judgement that the Illinois Eavesdropping Law was UNCONSTITUTIONAL!
Currently on KICKSTARTER for funding for making DVDs, distribution, educational consultant and PR.
