Filmmaker Piers Sanderson has appealed for £30,000 in donations to clear the music rights for documentary about Acid House. ‘High On Hope’ mixes original footage from warehouse parties combined with news archives and interviews chronicling the music and movement from its beginnings in Chicago through to its breakthrough in England in the late 80s and early 90s.
The film has been completed for two years and been shown at various festivals, but funding is needed to clear the music rights for a DVD release. A £3 donation will give fans the chance to watch the movie via an online stream ahead of release. £10 will secure a DVD of the film ahead of its official release in addition to an online link. £25 will give fans two tickets for the movie’s launch party as well as a DVD. Donating £100 will give supporters all of the above, as well as a certificate of thanks and a mention in the film’s final credits.
