For over a century, movies have entertained us, educated us, surprised us, transported us to different times and distant places, teaching us values and ideologies (consciously and unconsciously), and sometimes moving us. Some films are genuine works of art.
In a world overpopulated by a predatory species, that is cornering the other species and depleting natural resources, movies can be a good vehicle to show that we can still move towards a sustainable society, and that it can only be done working towards an egalitarian world, with solidarity and without borders.
El Gatoverde is looking to produce movies and documentaries that may contribute in some way towards that world by entertaining, surprising, transporting us to other places and at times, conveying ideals of solidarity. But, we also want to move people. If we achieve a little of that, we will have reached our goal.
Films such as Julie have been created due to new ways of funding.
The making of the film has been possible thanks to all of the people who believed in our project and have supported us in fulfilling our dream. We want to thank all of those people here:
28 KM ASSOCIATION
This film has been made possible by rural farmers, the inhabitants of the Matavenero Community and the members of KM 28. All have been involved with this film from the beginning and have helped us to move forward, both in the pre-production phase and during the filming. Providing logistical support, food, materials, transport, accommodation, all of our needs were kindly met and we are very grateful to all of them.
But what is the association Km 28?
The association Km 28 – Matavenero, is requesting the following crowdfunding for the construction of the Rumba Club via the funding platform financiación goteo (drip funding) (https://www.goteo.org/project/el-rumba-club). The Rumba Club is an ecological-social project aiming to provide a space for cultural programming (events, meetings, performing arts…), free schooling and economic self-management through sustainable activities (bio building, traditional crafting, new technologies, community services …).
