About the project

Love Land is about the importance of diverse (and often risky) experiences to the fulfillment of the human condition.  It's about refusing to accept the segregation of the world's largest minority, and about jump-starting a cultural discourse in America to help change perceptions of “pity and fear” to those of “equal citizenship."

Love Land is a movie with nuanced, layered characters that reach beyond stereotypes, presenting characters with intellectual disabilities as complete and conflicted human beings—capable of good, evil, and grey—with far-reaching desires and vibrant, profound identities; it is a movie that dares to say that social views – not individual bodies – are the real barriers for people with disabilities; and it says that “charitable interaction” is unacceptable, proclaiming full community inclusion as a civil right.

Synopsis

Love Land is a narrative dramatic feature film that follows Ivy, a young woman with a severe traumatic brain injury that affects her motor and cognitive skills, as she faces her refusal to be identified as a person with an intellectual disability.  When she is placed in an institution for being a danger to herself and others, Ivy will stop at nothing to prove to the world, and to herself, that she is “normal” enough to transcend the label of “Special.”

ABOUT THIS TEAM

Disability advocates throughout the nation know and trust Josh Tate and his team to tell this story with integrity, originality, and industry-standard technique.  Josh holds a BS in Film Production from UT Austin and Josh, Paul Gleason, Andrew Richey, and Maritte Go each hold an MFA in Cinematic Arts from USC. 

During his time at USC, Josh directed two advanced projects, one under the mentorship of Sheldon Larry (Leave it On the Floor) and produced seven others.  Josh’s combined knowledge of production and the disability rights movement is truly unprecedented, and with the support of a crew of cutting-edge and highly trained filmmakers, it’s difficult to imagine any other team coming close to executing the production of this story with the same depth of passion, understanding, artistic nuance, and—most importantly—humility

Distribution plan
The Love Land team seeks theatrical release and intends on hiring a sales agent for domestic and foreign sales. Love Land’s ambitious goal is to premiere at Sundance, Toronto, South by Southwest, or Tribeca. After Love Land’s world premiere, the filmmakers hope to maximize the film’s visibility among the disability community by screening the film in as many highly regarded disability-focused film festivals as possible. The filmmakers recognize that theatrical release is extremely difficult to attain; therefore, they also intend on pursuing a hybrid model of distribution based on the five primary digital and VOD distribution channels (broadcast release, foreign VOD, cable VOD, Internet VOD, and direct-to-consumer DVD sales through the Love Land website, university tours, and national advocacy events).

UPDATES

Dear Followers and Contributors,

I'm humbled and honored to announce that together, we are officially making a movie.  Its name is LOVE LAND, and its mission is to empower the disability community with a movie that will crawl into your head and stay there: a movie with complex characters with disabilities, a compelling storyline, and themes you won't soon forget.  

This has been a dream of mine for ten years.  Today, it's a reality.  That's because of you, and I can't begin to express my gratitude.

If you or someone you know is interested in auditioning for Love Land, they can learn more at lovelandfilm.com/audition.

Finally, we encourage you to continue to support independent film in your community, and that includes participating in the Fair Trade Filmmaking community on Seed&Spark.  Explore the Seed&Spark website, watch grand and daring films with the Sparks you've amassed through your contributions, and be an agent for change in your own living room.

We'll be keeping in touch -- with news, with your rewards, with our shoot coming up in May, and in the Spring of next year, thanks to you...a finished film.

If you have something to share, email me directly at josh@lovelandfilm.com and I'll do my best to respond.  Or, even better, post a video on YouTube and share it with us.  We'd love to see your face.

Yours sincerely,

Josh & the Love Land team
