Brit colleague and ally, Franny Armstrong, has just launched a nice website for her film, CRUDE, which has been 5 years in the making. The film documents the oil crisis through global voices. She is busy editing. If this production is anything her previous work (McLibel, Drowned Out) it’s gonna be great - and as tragi-comic as SiCKO (which made me laugh, made me cry over the weekend).
Franny is a master at financing films outside of the system. She had to, because television wouldn’t come near her or her film about McDonald’s for fear of lawsuits. Eventually, BBC broadcast it, after the film became a cult hit, and millions of audiences around the world had already seen it.
CRUDE is due out in theatres in early 2008.
