Monty Python alum Terry Gilliam has a new short film “The Wholly Family” that’s due to hit the Web on Jan. 23.
The Guardian reports:
“It hasn’t been that long since Shane Meadows made a short feature with commercial sponsorship; Eurostar stumped up the cash for his dramaSomers Town, and the company was rewarded with very prominent branding and plot involvement. Not everyone was thrilled that a film-maker should take the commercial shilling. My colleague David Cox sharply pointed out that Eurostar’s corporate practices were given a rosy fictional glow.
Now Terry Gilliam has moved into this arena with a new 20-minute short film, to be distributed online. It has been entirely funded by the Garofolo Pasta company, an Italian firm based in Gragnano near Naples, where the film is set.”
