Here Comes the Storm
Things have been quiet. We’ve been busy. Heads down. Preparing.
A storm is coming.
I am proud to announce that editing is now finished. We will continue making minor adjustments, but it is done. No more wondering. This film is coming out.
I am exhausted. Our team is tired from editing eight versions of the film. It is emotional work, with so many lives on the line.
Now it’s time to show the world.

Theater Near You?
We are gearing up to bring our film to theaters all over the world. Unfortunately, that takes money. We are working to partner with a film distributor, but we need to build a larger following first.
In the meantime we are reaching out directly to theater operators. If you have a theater near you that plays documentary films, please contact them to request A Billion Lives.
If you know anyone that wants to sponsor an after-party for a theater showing, please have them contact us. We are putting together a tour.
It’s Our Time
You helped us dig up information. You connected us with interview subjects. You gave us a loud voice. You helped make this film.
Now is the time to bring it to the world.
Here we go,

We at the Electro Tobacconist have already contacted The Little Cinema in Bath and have requested that they consider playing the Documentary if they can, and we encourage you all to do the same via their website https://www.picturehouses.com/cinema/The_Little
or directly via their company email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for your continued support,
The Electro Tobacconist Team.
