Overview

POSTCARDS FROM THE SET: HOW I MADE AN EPIC INDIE FILM tells the story of the making of the cult comedy ADVENTURES OF POWER, an all-star movie about a mine worker who discovers an underground subculture of air-drummers that has the power to change the world. "One of the funniest films in recent years" - New York Magazine. "The best rock movie in many a year" - Neil Peart (drummer, RUSH).

In POSTCARDS FROM THE SET, writer-director-actor Ari Gold makes public the hilarious and heartbreaking letters and photos he sent to his circle of friends during the making of his cult movie. We get the inside scoop about dealing with celebrities and egotistical agents, fighting mining conglomerates for the right to shoot, and hard days and nights facing lightning, giant rats, and broken bones on the way to Sundance and beyond.

Gold's 4-year journey to finance, shoot, and distribute a movie on a fraction of a Hollywood budget takes him across Utah, New Mexico, New York, New Jersey, and California, and eventually as far afield as Guatemala, the Czech Republic, and Thailand. Along the way, Gold encounters haters and Hollywood executives who don't understand the film's spirit—but also collects a dedicated core of 100,000 fans, friends, and volunteers who champion the film and its underlying message of hope.
