Sheila Canavan and Michael Chandler, the documentarians who filmed former Rep. Barney Frank throughout the Massachusetts Democrat’s final year in Congress, have launched an online fundraising effort to help spread their still-in-need-of-fine-tuning project nationwide.
“Compared to What? The Improbable Journey of Barney Frank,” a pull-no-punches peek into Frank’s personal and professional lives, began making the festival rounds last year, opening first at Tribeca before migrating West.
While pleased with the industry response, Chandler told HOH he’s ready to share the film with a broader audience.
“It was fun being at the festivals. But we want the world to see it,” Chandler said of the dream of wider distribution.
