“The Man From Earth”, and funding the sequel on Kickstarter

If you’ve not yet seen the movie “The Man From Earth”, I highly recommend watching it. It’s one of my favourite movies and has made the Top 5000 list on IMDB with a rating of 7.9. The movie centers around a group of people, with one of them telling a story. Most of the story takes place in the living room of one of these people, and there’s hardly any action or CGI, but the movie will keep you at the edge of your seat throughout, wondering what’s going to happen next! The movie spread mostly through file-sharing networks and gained recognition as a result. The producers acknowledged that the movie gained far higher recognition than they had initially imagined and thanked file-sharers, encouraging fans to either buy the DVD or to donate.

As of yesterday there’s a Kickstarter project to fund the sequel – “The Man From Earth II: Man From Earth Millennium”. There’s the promise of an equally enthralling story, a worthy successor, but at this point it’s too early to say. If you’re interested in supporting the sequel of an amazing movie, head on over to their Kickstarter page and see if their write-up tempts you to pledge.
