I am personally writing you on behalf of myself and the rest of the crew and supporters who have so far generously contributed to the making of this intriguing biopic of this large scale sculptor artist from Iceland, Jóhann Eyfells. I’ve known Jóhann for 6+ years now, and it only became apparent to me that this friendship would turn into a creative collaboration, when I began to see the potential impact his work and profound ideas would have both in the art world and our everyday thinking.

We have just one more bit of shooting to do in Iceland, which would serve as both the backdrop and fountainhead for this compelling story about a man, who began his young life as boxing champion as well as an architect in his home country, moved away to America to become a world class large scale sculptor, with huge exhibits all over the globe, including the world renowned Venice Biennale and 1972 Munich Olympics. It is also a story of love between him and his wife of almost 60 years, Kristin Eyfells, who was herself an artist sculptor of great magnitude and depth.
We have only 2 days left in the fundraising campaign, and we are so very close in reaching our goal of $23,000. So far, with the help from generous art lovers, we have raised $18,000+, and we need just under $5,000 to reach our goal.
