Our short film, “The Last Week: How Lawsuits Doomed an American Icon,” already won the “Excellence in Filmmaking Award” at the Anthem Film Festival last July.
Now, we’re pleased to announce that the film has been accepted to the Irvine International Film Festival, to be held January 10-16, 2014 in Laguna Hills, California.
This documentary chronicles the painful last days of Blitz USA — the world’s leading manufacturer of gasoline cans — which was forced to close its doors in the wake of a flood of litigation. The film shows the devastation wreaked on this manufacturing company and the impact lawsuits—and the plaintiffs’ lawyers who brought them—have on real lives in one small town.
