After exhausting all other possibilities for funding we've turned to Kickstarter to raise completion funding for my documentary, Racing the Rez.
You can learn more and back us on our Kickstarter site: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1808230198/racing-the-rez-a-documentary
Racing the Rez follows Navajo and Hopi cross-country runners from two rival high schools in Arizona who put it all on the line for tribal pride, triumph over personal adversity and state championship glory. Four years in the making, this film has been picked up by distributor American Public Television for broadcast on public TV in late 2012. Generous funding from Native American Public Telecommunications has gotten us to fine cut and now we need the money to finish the film and deliver it for broadcast.
Any and all help in the form of a pledge or a post on social media sites is welcome.
