In keeping with the last wishes of his dear friend Sir Christopher Lee, actor, producer, 70mm camera operator, film authority extraordinaire, adventurer, stunt man and now distributor Douglas Dunning has signed with Vision Films & Jamil Dehlavi for the North American theatrical rights for one year to release Sir Christopher’s 1998 film Jinnah. The goal is to raise $300,000.00.
This is the most important and most personal film of Sir Christopher’s impressive career. It is also his finest performance as little-known world leader Muhammad Ali Jinnah, the founder of Pakistan, who assumed office in 1947. The film was made over a period of ten weeks in 1997 and for one reason or another has never been shown in the English-speaking world.
Please consider contributing to the crowdfunding campaign which will be announced in the near future. The funds are for a limited 10 major cities in North America in 2016 (after a major premiere) to be announced on this site.
Mr. Dunning can be seen on DVD in the film Hunter: Future Cop (which he also co-produced), co-starring with Laurene Landon & George Lazenby. The film is due for DVD release on September 15, 2015 and can be pre-ordered from Amazon.com.
