Dear friends and fellow film fans,

I just started a crowdfunding project to help restore and release my 1999 feature film PENDECHOS! (former title: ROADRUNNER).
This gangster - roadmovie was shot on Super-16mm and was the very first project I ever did, therefore it is very dear to my heart. It was inspired by a meeting with US filmmaker Robert Rodriguez who had told me how he had produced his EL MARIACHI for some $7,000.-. It was quite an adventure and everything I learned I used shortly afterwards for my Sam Peckinpah-film PASSION & POETRY – THE BALLAD OF SAM PECKINPAH.

Like EL MARIACHI I shot PENDECHOS! on film and edited on video, therefore I have to go back and transfer the complete 6 hour film negative for a new cut (HD quality). I will use the opportunity to use whatvever I have learned since then and will give the film a new narrative, new sound, a new look etc. etc.
But this is way beyond my possibilities regarding financing, hence this crowdfunding project.
I appreciate any kind of help – promotion, word-of-mouth propaganda, links …

But of course you can help best this project if you support us, for instance by ‘purchasing’ a DVD/Blu-ray upfront! Just visit the crowdfunding website (there’s also a short video with film scenes and behind the scenes footage), any kind of interest from your side is much appreciated.
