The film

«Sally is a prostitute for pionneers and trappers in a small town in Wisconsin. As she can no longer bear the abuses and fear for her baby’s life, she decides to run away and face the cold and snowy mountains instead of enduring the violence one more day.»

Far from the image of the good whore we are used to in westerns, prostitution in the wild west was a wretched reality : rapes, addiction, depression et persecutions. With «Sons of Bitches» the idea is to demystify those watered down tales by offering a singular and uncompromising film.

The director

Arnaud Baur is a self-trained director and producer based in Neuchâtel, Switzerland. His previous short-film, «The White Lady» has been selected in about 20 international film festivals and won the best film award at the second edition of the Youcinema Fantastic Film Festival (CH). Besides «Sons of Bitches», he currently works on another short film, «Cherche Prince Charmant Désespérément».

The casting

The Crew

Where does your money go?

If the crew are all volunteers there are nonetheless some incompressible costs, such as meals and travels for example. We also need to invest a bit of money for the second part of the shoot – which will take place in April – for the interior scenes which are a bit more costly than exteriors. All in all we need a bit of money to put «on the screen».

What rewards?

You will take part in an atypical film project for swiss cinema – and therefore quite unique! Also you will be able to get one of the perds listed here such as your name in the credits, the DVD or a props from the movie!
