Tweetable Logline:

Hawaii is a film about a helpless man that is reunited with a childhood friend who helps him, creating a bond that goes beyond friendship.

Elevator Pitch:

Hawaii is a film about a homeless man that is reunited with a childhood friend who helps him, creating a bond that goes beyond friendship. Martin seeks for an odd job at Eugenio's house. When Eugenio recognizes Martin as a childhood friend, and realizes his current situation, he decides to give him work for the summer. A power & desire game is generated and a strange relationship starts to grow, but it cannot flourish mostly because of the social differences that grew between them. This barrier typical of Jane Austen's novels is resignified in a contemporary story of social classes.

Production Team:

Director / Producer - Marco Berger
Cinematographer - Tomás Perez Silva
Composer / Producer - Pedro Irusta
Lead role - Manuel Vignau
Lead role - Mateo Chiarino

About the Production:

"The project is created by a partnership between Marco Berger (director / screenwriter of Plan B & Absent) and Pedro Irusta. We want to produce - for the first time- an independent film that we can own, and that may allow us to create a platform to continue producing films in the future. We are getting a hard time getting funds, even though Plan B & Absent got a very good response worldwide. So when we heard about the new possibilites of crowd funding, we thought it was a good moment to try it."

Current Status:

We are fundraising mainly via Kickstarter to start production hopefully before 2012 ends.
