Max Eternity @ MaxEternity.com | Kickstarter Project Announcement – Artist and video journalist, Nancy Bechtol, is using the Kickstarter social media platform to garner support for her upcoming film on Chris Drew’s epic campaign for free speech and artistic license. Drew passed away earlier this year, and as reported by MaxEternity.com, Drew, who was the founder of the Uptown Multi-Cultural Art Center in Chicago:
“…was arrested on December 2, 2009, while he was out on the streets of Downtown Chicago selling small silk-screened patches for $1 each. At the time, Drew said he was expecting to be arrested and taken into custody by police—being charged with a misdemeanor. It was a deliberate act of civil disobedience, he said, that seemed essentially harmless. But when he discovered that he was actually being charged with a felony, and was facing up to 15 years in jail, Drew was nothing short of outraged, and vowed to do everything he could to challenge the state’s indictment.”
Bechtol’s film is entitled, The film is entitled, Free Speech & the Transcendent Journey of Chris Drew, and more about the film, including a trailer, can be found at Kickstarter.
