We did it! We sent our beloved little shopping cart out into the world! After a wonderful festival run, where we picked up some pretty nifty awards, we are ready for our next adventure!
While screening our film, one common theme emerged from audiences – they related. As parents, they related to the idea of teaching their children to pursue purpose, regardless of perceived limitations, and children were captivated by the adventures of a shopping cart with human emotion. The story is for all ages. It is a source of comfort and reflection. The visuals of the film are an ideal setting for a children’s book. The message of inclusion and acceptance are both timely and timeless. With the generous support of the Illinois Arts Council Agency, we have set out on our new journey – the adaptation of our film into a children’s book. Stay tuned!
