    meg1060ik Marina,and Iam also speaking to others who might read this, why not fashion the footage in a straigt time line and then shop it to HBO ( IAM CERTAIN YOU HAVE ALREADY VISITED THIS). The astounding visual sense you bring to such jarring material is rare– It’s like you are furiously painting. Now, where are the money people out there who finance hundreds of millions of dollars on DRECK? Show some chutzpah and help bring this work that screams to be seen and heard to a wide audience.
    sincerely,
    Michael Groetzinger

    Hi Michael.
    Thank you for your vote of confidence. HBO passed on the project, commenting “It’s too creepy for us.” I have licensed it for 2 years to The Documentary Channel (as is) where it plays on Dish Network and DirectTV, mostly at 2 am, but better than nothing! If you have any connections or ideas I am open to them all. Have applied for many grants to expand it to feature length, but just keep meeting with rejection. I am a bit beaten by the business right now, not to mention the constant revisiting of my unhappy childhood.
    Thank you again for your support Michael.
    Marina

    Marina, while I’m bereft of the kinds of connect-
    ions, the ones with “JUICE”, I do have a fair number of artist friends who might… it’s a long shot but we’ll take it, yes(my affected Frenchman). This will come to fruition,kiddo-
    just have to shame(now there’s an idea) the ass
    holes holding the GREEN LIGHT. Some PR in that direction might bear fruit. Not since SYBIL have
    the ghosts from my own “Childhood” been stirred
    to such mischief. BE well. Michael
