Sounds & Echoes storyteller (and renaissance woman) Jillian Mertz is working on the latest film from Director Yony Leyser (William S. Burroughs: A Man Within) called Desire Will Set You Free. Set in Berlin’s vibrant queer and underground scenes, Desire follows the relationship of Ezra, an American writer of Israeli/Palestinian descent (played by Leyser), and Sasha, a Russian aspiring artist working as a hustler (played by Tim Fabian-Hoffman).
The cast and crew are seeking additional funding to cover post-production costs. This includes editing, color correction, sound design, rights clearances, formatting, soundtrack production, and festival submissions.
You can learn more and check out the trailer for the film on the Desire Kickstarter page. Give what you can to ensure this project makes it into festivals and theaters!
