The Second Wave

People always ask “How can I help fight?”

I always responded: “We don’t need money, we just need you to help get the word out.”

Sadly, the launch showings above aren’t going to be enough to wake up the media and politicians. We need more, or they will dismiss this message as a “niche film”.

Thankfully, our supportive community is planning a second wave of theater showings and in the next couple days we have to demonstrate adequate demand for the movie (and our message) or they won’t be approved by the theaters.

I hate to ask, but it’s really important

In the US alone, there are about 70 screenings that can only happen if we get enough tickets reserved.Some only have a couple days left before the deadline so it can be shown before the US elections.

Click the map below to find one near you and buy some tickets.

Give them to a smoker.
Give them to a loved one.
Give them to your customers.
Give them to your doctor.
Give them to your media.
Give them to your politicians.

The theater is a safe place for the community to learn. This is our best chance at making an impact.

There are about 30 more in the other three countries below. Please help spread the word about the showing near you, buy tickets, or organize a showing in your city if there isn’t one.

Ask me if you need help.

We’re only going to get one chance at this. The media is watching. The politicians are watching.

Now’s our chance.

    DUDE! YA HAVE TO HAVE THIS IN INDONESIA. Make it so that indonesians can also watch HAVE TO!!!

  • Pete Jarmain

    This is ridiculous, why is this limited to cinema showings that many won’t attend. Stick it on Netflix or YouTube and wallup you have your message out. Can’t get head round the marketing of this.

  • Kim Arvidsson

    There was only one showing in Sweden in a cinema in Stockholm, quite an ineffective way to reach the general population.

    I did not get to see it, as it was not in a cinema near me.

    If you really truly want the word out you should make it public and free for download and streaming.

  • kohl campbell

    You need to make this public, i understand you have to recoup costs. But if you put it on youtube and monetized it, it would go viral like wildfire. You should like others have said.. approach netflix. And or press the doc yourselves and sell. By sticking to just random showings you are hurting yourself, as well as the message you want to get across.
