A huge thank you to everyone who donated to the Threads finishing campaign during July.  Thanks to all of you we are able to move forward with the critical final work that will make Threads into a completed film, ready to be seen around the world.

We still welcome donations, of any size, and appreciate them all!

Our campaign website will remain active for the time being, and people can always donate directly through the International Documentary Association, a 501(c)3 nonprofit.

Thank you!

A short slideshow about Threads and its themes is online for viewing and sharing.  You can see it on Vimeo here or on SlideRocket here.  I’m also thinking about embedding it on the website.

Please take a look and pass the links on to people who would be interested in this story of overcoming challenges through inspiration, dedication and art.

Thanks, as always, to Anil Advani for the wonderful photos of Surayia, the women of Arshi and the art.
