The wonderful news comes in hand with RogerEbert.com also picking their Kickstarter appeal as "video of the day."
The film, co-directed/produced by Dan Rybicky & Aaron Wickenden, follows their 'discovery' of elderly outsider artist Peter Anton, and the complications and ethical conundrums that ensue as they become more involved in his life and art.
With just 7 days left to get to their goal of $20,000, the filmmakers have raised over $16,000 from 240+ backers as of this morning. Help them get to the goal!
You can also learn more about the film and Peter Anton from this recap of their Pierogifest sneak preview.
