Crowdfunders Empty Pockets for Catalan Independence

L'endemà. Respostes per a decidir‘, a documentary project about Catalonia's potential independence from Spain, produced by Isona Passola [ca], earned a record-breaking €150,000 on the crowdfunding platform Verkami on February 15, 2013. Passola, who produced the award-winning film Pa Negre [ca], hoped to reach that amount in 40 days, but reached that goal in just eleven. Previously, the crowdfunding record in Catalonia was €,50,000, according to the Catalan-language journal Diari Ara [ca].
 The project's promoters have eagerly asserted that if they can reach €153,108  the film will be “the most successful crowdfunding project in Europe.”

L'endemà is intended to project “clear, solid, reliable and credible arguments” to combat “the fear of voting YES” in an upcoming referendum for the independence that the Catalan government is organizing, while defying firm resistance from the central Spanish government.
