My good friend Michele Civetta, is in the process of raise money for his next short film project which is an adaptation of Anais Nin's A SPY IN THE HOUSE OF LOVE. Michele and I met in Los Angeles many years ago, originally introduced through our mutual friend Liz Goldwyn, and went on to work together on several different projects such as Friendly Fire, with Sean Lennon, as well our ONEDREAMRUSH short film festival, which we both curated, directed, and produced films for.

Michele has received partial funding from Italian Ministry of Culture and has turned to Kickstarter to raise the rest of the funds needed to shoot the film.

Please see below synopsis of the project:

"A Spy in the House of Love a 15 minute film based on the internationally acclaimed novella by Anais Nin (Henry & June).The film has been chosen to receive funding from the Italian Ministry of Culture. Confirmed cast members include Asia Argento, Brady Corbett, Lou Doillon, Alessandro Roja and Franco Nero.

Set in the 1950's, the film is a journey into the mind of Sabina, an adulterous woman in torment of her secrets being shattered. Sabina believes herself to be an international Spy in the house of Love. Leading a double life behind her loving husbands back, Sabina's system begins to collapse. One evening she dials a number at random from a phone booth to hear an unfamiliar voice on the other end of the line. The man she speaks with, the Lie Detector begins to follow her. Growing increasingly paranoid, Sabina is convinced the Lie Detector is pursuing her, seeking out a truth, as if her were a conscience to her every action and word. Similar in tone to Last Tango in Paris or The Conformist, The story speaks of the secret lives we lead and how fantasy collides with everyday reality."
