Sundance: Grand Jury Prize Winner Documentary 2009We Live In Public, A Film by Ondi Timoner MoMA: Permanent Collection

The countdown is ON for our **major** March 1st DVD/VOD release event that will connect the screenings and festivities in Vancouver, LA, Denver, Chicago, New York and Atlanta and bring them to YOU at www.weliveinpublicthemovie.com beginning at 5:30pm PST.   The grand hostess of the LA branch of this affair will be none other than the gorgeous Eliza Dushku, who released this statement about WE LIVE IN PUBLIC:

“We Live In Public is an extraordinary film that I have followed since it won the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance last year.  The film has travelled the globe and captivated audiences with an extremely powerful message regarding today’s Internet culture. In addition to being a compelling doc about entrepreneur Josh Harris, WLIP asks the hard question: what happens when we start to live in a virtual world rather than in the physical one. Witnessing Ondi document Josh’s joy and suffering caused by living a public life on the web, the film challenges us to look at whether or not social networking is worth the loss of our own privacy and dignity. As an actress in a culture of celebrity, I know all too well that I exist in my own virtual “pod” and this films sheds light on my own existence.  As Ondi Timoner’s producing partner on her next project, a Robert Mapplethorpe biopic, I’ve been thrilled to support her current journey with We Live in Public.  You must see it to believe it.  I ask you to join us. I am honored and excited to be a part of the 6-city live streaming broadcast, video on demand and DVD release with Ondi and her followers.  Using today’s technology, we will come together from all corners of the country to a common place and send off this astonishing film for a wide release.  Congratulations, Ondi.

Thanks, Eliza — we love you!

Check out what Adrian has to say about WE LIVE IN PUBLIC and our upcoming event!

“I’m pumped to be a part of this unique web-cast conversation for “We Live in Public”.  I am excited to be paving new territory with a trusted explorer Ondi Timoner. Not only is the film amazing and timely, but the web is a perfect forum to share it with its fans.  I’ve loved her films for years and have always watched her closely because as an independent thinker and filmmaker, she’s been smart and innovative in this uncharted space called the internet. Ondi, with this film, has almost become an oracle in my mind. I am an independent documentary filmmaker myself and because my last film TEENAGE PAPARAZZO shares many similar themes as WE LIVE IN PUBLIC, I feel a strong sense of simpatico with Ondi. These days it is important that we all band together as independent spirits to share momentum and support. Low budget  independent films and documentaries were once marginalized, but that’s not the case anymore. On the internet, with whatever budget and with whatever genre of film, we can appeal directly to our audience and let the audience speak and respond. The internet is the great democratizing force. The ’90s saw the rise of independent film and now we will usher in a new era of independent film that, thanks to the internet and web-casts such as this, includes the audience in the equation as well. Let’s do this, I can’t wait.”

Ondi and Adrian at Sundance 2010

Thanks, Adrian!

YOU can come be a part of the conversation on March 1st, so join Ondi, Josh, Adrian, Eliza and the gang and be a part of film and internet history!

In a dishy piece, The New York Post calls out Bill Gates for cavorting around Sundance 2010 like a drunken spring lamb, as he “busted some moves amidst beauties and flirted up a storm all over town.”   And who did Bill rub shoulders with, according to the piece?  “Gates chatted up filmmaker Ondi Timoner, the auteur behind documentaries ‘DIG!’ and the upcoming ‘We Live in Public’…”   Our very own Ondi!  And Ondi totally scooped their story by tweeting the below pic at least two days before they ran with it.   Read about Bill’s dorky dance moves and more HERE.

If you FOLLOW ONDI ON TWITTER, you are getting the updates on Ondi’s glamorous stint as a documentary juror this year.   As she does the dirty work of judging the competition films in preparation to pass on her 2009 Grand Jury crown, we at Interloper Films are getting ready for the DVD and video-on-demand release of WE LIVE IN PUBLIC at the start of March.  PREORDER the film, and also brace yourself for the big March 1st release festivities in cities across the country — more details to follow.

Happy holidays!
As the end of the year approaches and journalists compile their best-of-year (and best-of-decade)  lists, we’ve been excited to see WE LIVE IN PUBLIC get a lot of nods from various people who *clearly* have excellent taste.   One of our favorite reviews from the past year came from legendary film critic Roger Ebert, who gave us a four star review in October.  We are thrilled to be a part of his year-end round-up of the best docs of 2009, alongside some other amazing docs including TYSON, THE SEPTEMBER ISSUE, and ANVIL! THE STORY OF ANVIL.

“Josh Harris… was a myopic visionary, a man who saw the future more vividly than his own life… Filmmaker Ondi Timoner was on the scene from the start… Fascinating.”

Have a fun and safe New Year’s Eve and we’ll catch you next year!

Roger Ebert recently raved in the Sun-Times, “This is a remarkable film about a strange and prophetic man.  [4 STARS]“  And just today, the Washington Post writes, “The title of Ondi Timoner’s Sundance award-winning documentary about the loss of privacy in the Internet age says it all: “We Live in Public.” Don’t believe it? Just try Googling “Tiger Woods” or “Michaele Salahi…”

MORE INFO

We’ve received a warm welcome from Ohio journalists.   Cleveland.com describes the film as “…a journey through the life of dot-com entrepreneur Josh Harris, a wily wheeler-dealer who went from boom to bust, sacrificing privacy for his trenchant narcissism….  It’s great when a documentary can make us stop, catch our breath and really take notice of the weird world around us.  In this case, our ever-exposed, constant-contact, Facebook, MySpace, streaming, Skypeing, Twittering, texting lives… WE LIVE IN PUBLIC is a hoot!”

See you this weekend, Ohioans!
