GUEST,Ian cookieless Morris: A Life With Bells On (film) (375* d) RE: Morris: A Life With Bells On 25 Jan 09


I emailed from the film website asking about DVD release as there's not a cinema anywhere near me showing it. I received this response:

Dear Ian

We can't show the film on DVD until it has had proper distribution, I'm afraid. However, we would love to show the film near to you. We'd love to show it all over the country, but it isn't up to us. We'd like to get it into mainstream cinemas so that everyone can see it. For that, we need the distributors who passed on it before Christmas to realise they made a mistake.

You probably know this, but distributors are the people who flash up in the credits before the film - Icon, Lionsgate, Revolver, etc. They all saw the film, loved it, but were worried there was no audience for it. They would think again if they could see my inbox which is groaning with requests from all over the world...

We made the film for people just like you. People who are generally ignored by the media. We need you to make noise en masse to cinemas and distributors and let them know there is an audience for the film. That way, we can roll it our across the country, even the world. The incredible Cat Moore has started an e-petition you may want to sign

In any event, thank you for the passion shown for our film, your film.

All best wishes
