Every Thursday, Tura Satana Productions CEO Siouxzan Perry curates “Tura Thursday” a weekly series covering all things Tura Satana–the late, great star of Russ Meyer’s cult classic FASTER, PUSSYCAT KILL! KILL! But today in a special Monday posting, Siouxzan announces the launch of a Kickstarter campaign to finish a doc on her life entitled TURA!
The campaign runs from March 13th – April 11th and you can support it by clicking here. Siouxzan writes below about why this film is important to her.
I was not only Tura’s manager but her close confidant of many years. Her passing was far more than a tragic loss for her family, but, also for her FANS. She left me in charge of all things Tura. Her fans meant the world to her and in her death she wanted her legend to live on. I therefore devoted myself to keeping her memory as an iconic cult legend ALIVE – just as she wanted.
I decided the best thing to do was to nurture it through social media platforms, inspirational art shows and original events. But most of all to continue on Tura and my journey to produce a kick-ass biopic film: Tura, Her Story. I now have the best team possible to do this and we are in the final stages of completing our documentary.
Help us fulfill Tura’s dream, be a part of Tura’s story and keep her legend alive!
TURA! needs Kickstarter! Your participation in this extremely worthwhile project allows this film to finish and fulfill its true potential: poignant and inspirational, harrowing and thrilling, sexy and ENTERTAINING! (It is a movie, after all). Join us to make Tura’s dream come true.
