“Interestingly,” says Short Fuse, reporting from the Sundance Film Festival, “one of the taglines that we’ve batted around for I.O.U.S.A. is, ‘The party’s over.’ Seems pretty fitting right now, eh?

“The festival has been going quite well thus far – every one of our five screenings is entirely sold out…and Super-Size Me ’s Morgan Spurlock attended our premier this past Saturday.

“But what was really amazing,” continues Short Fuse, “was what happened at the screening on Sunday. After each film is a Q&A, where Patrick Creadon, the director, Addison Wiggin, who is the executive producer, and the films two ‘stars’ – U.S. Comptroller General David Walker and the Concord Coalition’s Bob Bixby – answer questions from the audience.

“When Mr. Walker took the stage, the crowd at the Park City screening got to their feet and gave him a standing ovation.

“The reviews have started to come out on the movie…and indiewire.com summed up I.O.U.S.A. pretty well, in my humble opinion. They called it ‘crucial viewing for anyone who claims to care about America.’”

More to come…in the meantime, you can get your I.O.U.S.A. updates here.
