    For information about the film please email us at info@shatterglassfilms.com About Shatterglass Films: At Shatterglass Films, we believe that a good story should be timeless. It should be impactful. A good story should be one that is both enjoyable and fluid — inviting discourse. The characters should be rich and their journeys engaging. We at Shatterglass understand that a good story is one you want to experience again, to share, and to ponder. We believe in producing films that are more than just entertaining. We believe in telling stories that are emotionally impactful; ones that feel as transformative to you as an audience, as they are to our characters on-screen. We believe in sharing stories that are as important to tell as they are award-winning or successful. It is this belief, and the talent of our creative team of expert storytellers, that makes Shatterglass Films a key player amongst independent filmmakers. We are committed to producing high-quality, artistically-driven stories that appeal to a wide variety of audiences, connecting with each of you in ways that — while hopefully different — will most certainly be memorable. We find and develop these stories from concept to completion. It takes creative ingenuity and passion. Sure, there’s technical wizardry, blood, sweat and tears going on behind the scenes, but what you will see is something inspiring and beautiful; something we love and are excited to share with you.

          • Bill Nack recites The Great Gatsby at Ebertfest

            Following a screening of LIFE ITSELF at Ebertfest, Roger Ebert's lifelong friend, the author and journalist Bill Nack, recited the last lines of The Great Gatsby, as he had done for each time they had met throughout their lives. LIFE ITSELF is released in theaters on July 4th in the USA. www.ebertmovie.com. @ebertmovie. www.facebook.com/ebertmovie. Nack said, "I think the passage resonated with Roger because he thought there was a little bit of Gatsby in him." From The Great Gatsby: "Most of the big shore places were closed now and there were hardly any lights except the shadowy, moving glow of a ferryboat across the Sound. And as the moon rose higher the inessential houses began to melt away until gradually I became aware of the old island here that flowered once for Dutch sailors’ eyes — a fresh, green breast of the new world. Its vanished trees, the trees that had made way for Gatsby’s house, had once pandered in whispers to the last and greatest of all human dreams; for a transitory enchanted moment man must have held his breath in the presence of this continent, compelled into an aesthetic contemplation he neither understood nor desired, face to face for the last time in history with something commensurate to his capacity for wonder. And as I sat there brooding on the old, unknown world, I thought of Gatsby’s wonder when he first picked out the green light at the end of Daisy’s dock. He had come a long way to this blue lawn, and his dream must have seemed so close that he could hardly fail to grasp it. He did not know that it was already behind him, somewhere back in that vast obscurity beyond the city, where the dark fields of the republic rolled on under the night. Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that’s no matter — tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther.... And one fine morning —— So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past."
