Help Tell a Story that has Never Been Told
What do Cinderella, Snow White, Hansel and Gretel, Harry Potter, and many other films (including Boyhood, which was recently nominated for an Oscar) have in common?
Step-parents are always presented in a negative light: plotters, violent, greedy, looking to harm the children, exploiters. It's time to tell another tale. Shattering a centuries-old myth sometimes requires one moving story and a big supporting hug from you.
In the Western World, one third of all couples divorce. New families are established all the time and often involve the challenge of managing the relationship between children and their step-parent.
Who am I?
Hi! My name is Uri Bar-On. I am a director and screenwriter. After making short films, documentaries and co-writing a TV series, my first feature film is due to be released on July 9th. It's about a subject that is very close to me, as someone who lives with a partner and her daughter from a previous marriage.
At an early stage I realized that this is also the story of many others like me who love a child that is not biologically their own and that, unlike what's usually depicted, stories like mine are complex, interesting and different but are often based 100% on love.
The relationship that I established with my step-daughter is so meaningful to me that I decided to make this film. It is important for me to reach all children, biological parents and step-parents and encourage them.
After nearly 10 years of work and with the help of five hundred people who worked on the movie (most of them volunteers or near- volunteers), we produced a film that tells a story that has never been told. The film has previewed in festivals inIsraeland abroad and has been highly praised.
This is a movie for everyone who wants and needs to believe in love.
Unfortunately, most Independent Israeli films run in theaters for a week at most, unless they have a minimal marketing budget to introduce them to the general public.
I invite you to be my partners and help me tell this story to many others.
About The Film
Nico is a 26 year old without commitment, a filmmaker/ bartender who lives in Tel Aviv. When seven year old Franny, finds him in bed asleep next to her mother, their relationship starts on the wrong foot. Nico tries to maintain a relationship with Franny's mother while Frannie finds herself stuck between her mother, her jealous father and Nico, who also functions as babysitter.
Will Nico win Franny over? During this magical journey, Franny and Nico will learn to love and hate one another, often in the same frame. This is a charming comic drama about love, hate, relationships, and the simple fact that love is boundless.
What will we do with your money?
The film will debut in movie theaters this summer, competing with all the big blockbuster films with huge budgets for advertising and public relations. We haven't been so fortunate.
Like many Independent films, all of our budget went toward producing the film.
Now we need the financial backing to distribute it - newspaper ads, digital advertising, PR, and renting theaters in small and outlying communities. We need your support so that we can compete successfully with other summer movies.
I invite you to be my partner in this film and make it happen.
In return for your support, you will be eligible for a variety of gifts. Select the gift that works best for you and help us tell a story that has never been told!
