A Kickstarter campaign has been launched to fund an amazing new feature film that shows the connection between human and animal relationships. Matilda allows viewers to examine our relationship with animals, the universal power of compassion, and the values that guide our lives.

The film will follow a young girl on the brink of adulthood. She experiences an unlikely encounter in the woods with a runaway cow who escaped a slaughterhouse. The film shows the real struggles that these animals are up against when they escape slaughterhouses. Most are captured and sent back to be killed, while only a small number are rescued.

Marc Pierschel is the acclaimed director of the film and has directed successful films like The End of Meat and Butenland, which won the Grand Prize at the 2020 International Vegan Film Festival. Matilda will be Pierschel’s first feature film. He hopes to raise awareness in the community, finance pre-production, and convince funders, broadcasters, and distributors to come on board.

“This initial Kickstarter campaign, which has a target of 50,000 Euros, will allow us to fund pre-production costs as well as raise awareness of the issues covered in the film. As a benefit to those coming on the journey with us, we wanted to ensure that we provided donors meaningful rewards such as a set visit, limited edition artwork, an on-set meet-and-greet with Matilda the Cow, and even a role in the film.”

Producer Steffi Koehler ensures that the film will be produced eco-consciously,

“We want to implement the sustainable, ethical standards to the film’s production that we practice ourselves in our production company.” Steffi continues, “It is our intention to make the film completely green and we will only be working with rescued animals and professional, animal-friendly set care.”

Those interested in donating can contribute to the film and find more information here. There are many different options to Donate and rewards you can receive for your donation, including a Matilda T-shirt, a set visit, and much more! The campaign will run until May 6th and allows a community of animal lovers and social justice seekers to come together to bring this film to screens. Let’s get this amazing feature film to screens!
