Ever wanted to chat with Andre Gregory for 30 minutes over Skype? Thought that your dinner with Andre would be just as fun as Wallace Shawn’s? Now here is your chance to prove it.
Before And After Dinner is a new documentary helmed by Gregory’s wife, Cindy Kleine, and describes itself as ‘an intimate portrait of the life and work of André Gregory, director, actor, writer, artist and raconteur,’ a film that ‘introduces us to this cultural icon in a spiral of unexpected twists and turns. Since the film is one of surprises, I don’t want to give too much away. Let’s just say it’s part thriller, part cloak and dagger, part backstage view of what goes into the making of a great theatre production, as well as a puzzle, a kaleidoscope, and a strange, funny, disturbing, inspiring journey.Â Before And After Dinner touches on universal questions: where does art come from? What experiences ultimately shape the life, the preoccupations, and the work of an artist? As inÂ My DinnerÂ With André, André’s colorful storytelling takes us back in time, searching for truth.’
The film is currently looking for funding on its Kickstarter page, and while the film itself should be enough to inspire you to help make this film come to life, you definitely have some interesting benefits. For 500 big ones, you will get a personalized thanks from Andre Gregory, quintuple that and you get a 30 minute Skype session with Gregory, and for $5000, yes, you can have your own dinner with the man himself. Sure, that’s a big price, but not only will you be getting a great reward of sorts, you’ll be helping one of the most intriguing sounding documentaries to come down the pipeline in years.
Head over to Kickstarter and help them out as much as humanly possible.
