It's been a beautiful, painful and non-linear 7 years at Unearthed. Many of you supported the Heart of Man film in its infancy back in 2010 when the emphasis was solely on sexual exploitation and trafficking. Others of you found out by word of mouth, fundraisers, email blasts, social media and conferences. However you came to partner with us, I want to thank you. The Heart of Man film saw its official nationwide release in theaters on September 14th, and over 50,000 of you came out to support the film. That evening was by no means the end of the road - we had demand for a theatrical encore on October 17th, and more is ahead in the way of international release and a tour.
2017 will be the final year of operation for Unearthed as an organization. We created Unearthed to make the Heart of Man film - and now that the film is complete, we are handing over the duties of distributing the film (and all of its subsequent resources) to some trusted friends of ours. Here are a few things to know moving forward:
- If you want your automatically recurring donation to stop prior to Dec 31, 2017, you can email me directly and I'll take care of that for you.
- If we don't hear from you, we will automatically cancel your giving subscription Dec 31, 2017 and you will no longer be charged.
- 2017 tax receipts will be emailed in January of 2018 for the 2017 calendar year.
- All information on the film can be found at the official Heart of Man film website
- A list of Frequently Asked Questions (and their corresponding answers) can be found here
- We hope to release the Heart of Man film internationally in 2018, but no solid release plans have been secured due to a present lack of funding. Jason Pamer can be reached with specific questions.
- The Heart of Man film has released on iTunes, BluRay, DVD and Amazon. DVDs will begin shipping November 2017.
Once we roll into 2018, all film correspondence will be handled by our Heart of Man social media pages, and emails will be coming from the team at PureHope
It's been a wild, beautiful, transformative journey because of your presence and generosity - and we got the thing done! We actually got it done!
Cheers to the road ahead...and all of the change that will happen because of your support.
