According to a statement, “The project, having just gone into production three years ago, has no current workable budget – in fact, the two are running a Kickstarter program (through the first week of August) to raise the necessary $45,000 to complete this film. This money will go to restore a massive amount of archived material from Channel 4 and elsewhere, which needs to be digitally transferred from its current 16mm film format, in addition to submissions to film festivals around the world, helping build a post-production team and creating DVDs for the film.”
