Filmmaker Alfonso Salcedo has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund his movie There Was Magic, which looks back at those beyond glam AIDS benefits that took place each year in Los Angeles from 1986 to 1996. Inspired by the book Heavenly Bodies: Remembering Hollywood and Fashion's Favorite AIDS Benefit, which was written by the event's founder Michael Anketell, the film chronicles how the two industries came together in the midst of a crisis. Featuring rare archival footage of Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, and more, There Was Magic without a doubt promises to be glamorous and fun — with a heart.
So, head to the film's Kickstarter page, watch the trailer below, and consider making a pledge. All donations will help ensure the project's completion. A good cause on a Monday, for sure!
