Dear Molly Beloveds,
Hello and Happy Summer to y’all. Team Raise Hell has been busy as bees moving “Raise Hell” forward.
In April, Janice and Carlisle traveled to Boulder to attend the Conference on World Affairs where Molly was a long time favored and featured speaker. The CWA had been asking us for several years when we could attend and show them something, (thank you Betsy Hand). This is the year we did it, and boy was it the right year!
The CWA scheduled us as the closing in the actual “Molly Ivins Plenary” spot. We screened the fundraising cut, which all y’all have seen, and a couple of other bits. Molly’s good friend Ellen Sweets moderated the Q and A panel, and we all had a great time remembering Molly. Never one to miss an opportunity to promote the film, Carlisle urged the crowd to educate their children and grandchildren on who Molly was, how much she is missed and why her voice is needed now more than ever!
Boy howdy, we are deep into the editing process and are on schedule to have a full rough cut by the end of summer! Janice and Monique Zavistovski, our dynamic duo director-editor team, are whipping Raise Hell into shape.
Here is a new clip, taken from the rough cut:
That’s all for now – we will check back in with y’all in the fall.
As always, THANK YOU for your support,
Janice Engel, Director – Producer
Carlisle Vandervoort, Producer
James Egan, Producer
