We are very excited to be a few days away from what should be the last filming session for Threads: The Art and Life of Surayia Rahman.  The site scouting has been done, the brilliant field producer and crew are ready. We really appreciate all of the support and help that people are providing.

If you would like to join us in this effort and help to wrap up the production of Threads, please read this letter to the supporters of the film, or go directly to the International Documentary Association and make a donation.

Thanks to everyone for your help!

We recently had the chance to say “thank you” to our Seattle-area supporters and show them a “sneak preview” of some of the footage shot in Bangladesh over the past 12 months.  The event on Mercer Island was a lot of fun for us and gave us an opportunity to talk with supporters, some of whom we had not met in person before.

In addition to a big thank you to those who have donated money, time and encouragement to the film project, we also want to say thanks to our friends who brought the delicious Bangladeshi food and tea, and to those who had so many good things to say about the film and about the importance of supporting independent film.  As always, Rita Meher did an excellent job of editing the most recent footage into a beautiful seven-minute clip.

We could not have come this far without the help and support of a lot of people.  Donations of money, time and services have gotten us to where we are today.  The outpouring of enthusiasm and encouragement keeps us going.  As we continue with our fundraising efforts we sincerely thank everyone who has helped and look forward to thanking those who will help in the future!
