Live Action Projects’ first feature documentary opened at SXSW and screened at 33 festivals around the world, winning multiple best documentary awards, before it became Hulu’s first film premiere. After the film graced the site’s landing page for 8 days straight, the Wall St. Journal chronicled its revolutionary distribution model. A 50-state grassroots theatrical campaign and national PBS broadcast followed.
Director David Modigliani’s favorite screening, however, was when the Alamo Drafthouse brought its inflatable screen and Rolling Roadshow to show the film on the football field in Crawford for the people in the film, who have no movie theater in town.
