I saw Crawford in the Spring at SXSW (South by Southwest) in Austin, Texas. It's a film all about the tiny little town of Crawford, TX and the man that moved there. It's a good documentary that gives yet another angle to President George W. Bush and his political machine. An independent film can be a tough sell and Crawford is the first film to make it's debut on Hulu.com--a Web site completely worth checking out, if nothing else for it's "Saturday Night Live" collection.
And here's an email from the Crawford team ... I recommend checking out the film on hulu.com.
After 3 years of filmmaking, we're thrilled to say: CRAWFORD is yours! On our new website you'll find a beautiful double-disc DVD, replete with some truly incredible extras, including our screening of CRAWFORD in the town of Crawford itself and reactions from all the film's characters.
I'm also excited to say that, in a groundbreaking event, CRAWFORD premieres on Hulu.com this week. This is the first major online premiere in history and it's an easy way to share the film with friends in a high quality stream. CRAWFORD is currently the most popular movie on Hulu!
CRAWFORD will play a total of 34 festivals this year; it's won the Brooklyn FF Audience Award for Best Documentary; two AP stories on the film have run around the world. Variety calls it "poignant," Premiere calls it "richly compelling" and The New York Sun calls it "revelatory." Now you can own it -- and share it.
