“I CLOWN YOU” documentary EXPLORES
THE LIBERATING AND HEALING POWERS
OF THE ART OF FOLLY THROUGH
THE STORIES OF CLOWNS
who work IN hospitals in ISRAEL.  

We've been working on "I Clown You" for 5 years. (yeah, we know... it's typical for a doc)
We ran a Kickstarter campaign two years ago that helped us get through the filming (and we are beyond grateful to everyone who supported us then and since then - here are all of them). 
We have been running the project by volunteering our own time and putting our money into it.

But to complete a feature film it's not enough. 
The total budget for finishing the film is $250,000. It's a typical and realistic number for a documentary film.
We need to raise $50,000 by the end of 2017 so that we can move forward and get some editing done so that we can apply to more grants and maybe get a distribution deal. 

we have amazing partners
