Complaints? Do we hear complaints? YES!
People on the international network demand a reward including a copy of the film in a lower price segment! Bolsheviks! Do not worry! We listen to the people! It is our profession!
Henceforth, we shall offer a proletarian, unlimited, unsigned and completely regular “DVD” of “Sierra Zulu” for “$54”. It will also include a small cardboard Soviet. We shall make it with this machine:

Soviet Unterzoegersdorf’s Research Group For Commodity Fetishism published a new paper (H32/7/12).
Quote: “In order to access and attract the wealthy plutocratic Western clientele, the State has to offer an additional reward in form of a decadent perversion.”
Recommendation of the research group: “In case of a single donor contributing more than $19,998, director Johannes Grenzfurthner should consume 1 pint of his own blood.”
He accepted. Only 1 pint available.

The “Digital Versatile Disk” is an optical disc storage format, invented and developed by Philips, Sony, and other class enemies in 1995. Soviet Unterzoegersdorf tried to establish its own standard, but failed, because they didn’t embrace the porn market.
Nevertheless: Donate over $129 and you will receive a limited edition DVD (signed by celebs) plus a Sierra Zulu movie poster (signed by even more celebs), plus a special Soviet gift (signed by an unknown soldier). (Disclaimer: DVD is a dying medium. It might end up being a Blu-Ray.)

In the face of a slowly expanding population and the unfulfilled demands for land for all types of public development, the problem of utilizing gravel is a critical issue for the industry of Soviet Unterzoegersdorf!
We want to offer you a deal. Give us $39 (bah, Bretton-Woods, bah!) to tell our story and you will receive a precious (and collectable) piece of our homeland! The Soviet Unterzoegersdorf Academy of Earth Handling will include a one-of-a-kind certificate of origin! (And your name on the silver screen!)

July 3 was a glorious day for international solidarity. A Soviet Unterzoegersdorf delegation visited the Austrian capital. His Excellency — the Ambassador of the People’s Republic — Nikita Perostek Chrusov gave a speech! He did not speak about tradition and skiing lifts, but hope! (And he screamed strong words at an anti-Semitic tourist.)

Honorable internet users! Proletarian scientists! Planned economists! Soviet Unterzoegersdorf needs you!
A so-called Kickstarter campaign is in progress! A desperate (and dialectic) measure to boost our financial might!
CLICK IT, bolshevik, CLICK IT!
Honorable internet users! Proletarian scientists! Planned economists!
July 3 (not 4, this is a different, slightly awkward celebration) we plan to launch a glorious Kickstarter campaign for the financial triumph of Sierra Zulu!
It is our pleasure to announce that His Excellency — the Ambassador of the People’s Republic of Soviet Unterzoegersdorf — Nikita Perostek Chrusov will travel to Vienna to give a speech! He will not speak about tradition and skiing lifts, but hope!
Vienna, July 3.
7 PM at the Soviet Monument on Schwarzenbergplatz. Rain or shine!
Please dress properly in Bolshevik attire and bring red flags! We plan a Gewaltmarsch towards the pub “Flying Pig” around 8 PM! The friendly owner of the drinking establishment will offer special beers and Molotov cocktails, will prepare borscht and blennies!
We were informed that our film grant was declined by the Austrian funding bodies. That is bad for troop morale and it complicates things, but it’s not the end of our little utopia.
First of all, we plan to re-apply. It seems there were a couple of open questions, and considering the unsual style, content and boldness of our production(*), we can’t blame the jury. A project like Sierra Zulu was never ever attempted in our little country of Soviet… aaah… Austria.
We plan to update our application and send in a few more tons of paper in July.
Still, we need to find alternative solutions for financial problems. So we decided to launch a Kickstarter campaign. We are well aware that it is unrealistic to obtain all the funds we need via Kickstarter, but even a symbolic amount is important for additional investors and foreign grants. It’s the old game: no one wants to invest money in a project that doesn’t have any money.
We will keep you updated, and we hope you will support the struggle of the creative proletariat!
