Doorpost Film Project WINNERS!

The 2009 Doorpost Film Project winners have been announced! Grand prize and $100,00 goes to The Butterfly Circus!

This short film (20min) is probably one of the best stories I've seen and the analogy is beautiful! Rumor has it that the director and his team are planning to make a full-length feature off of it now. Viewer discretion is advised as some of the period costuming is rather...accurate to the time period and thus "lacking" at times.
"Heartfelt, "The Butterfly Circus," is set during the height of the Great Depression. The showman of a renowned circus leads his troupe through the devastated American landscape, lifting the spirits of audiences along the way. During their travels they discover a man without limbs at a carnival sideshow, but after an intriguing encounter with the showman, he becomes driven to hope against everything he has ever believed.

"The Butterfly Circus" stars Eduardo Verastegui ("Bella"), Nick Vujicic (Life Without Limbs ministry) and Doug Jones (The Silver Surfer, "Pan's Labyrinth")."
