Finished just before the holidays, Lemonade is a short film about the optimistic side of creative unemployment, explored through interviews with "16 advertising professionals who lost their jobs and found their calling." After being laid off, they used their free time to become documentary filmmakers, coffee roasters and even transgendered.
This optimistic production is just starting to make its way around the country in sporadic, intimate screenings. There happens to be one coming up in Boston on January 14th at The Masssachusetts College of Art and Design, sponsored by the AIGA. To see it in your town, you can request one or buy the DVD.
The film was created by Please Feed The Animals, a blog for "the recently unemployed advertising professional," who happily remind us that "it's not a pink slip, it's a blank page."
