The adventure Eureka ! continues ! Les Productions des pieds des mains are starting a new project. Eureka, le documentaire ! This one will be possible with your contributions!


Following the enthusiasm aroused by the short film Eureka! directed by Menka Nagrani and David B. Ricard, Les productions des pieds des mains are aiming to produce a documentary highlighting its unique process and the integration of professional artists with a disability. Unpublished extracts that were captured during the filming of Eureka! and exclusive interviews with filmmakers and collaborators will be put together to present you an extraordinary artistic universe.

This documentary project is part of the singular approach of the company and wants to present a real portrait of the commitment and professionalism of the artists with whom it evolves. With this fundraising campaign, we want to raise $ 9000.00 to complete the production budget. Making a film takes time, material, competent people who each have their role and therefore a lot of resources.
