PLEASE VISIT OUR INDIEGOGO CAMPAIGN FOR SHORT FILMDEATH IS NO BAD FRIEND ABOUT ROBERT LOUIS STEVENSON:
Robert Louis Stevenson had what seems to many a very romantic relationship with Frances Matilda Van de Grift Osbourne Stevenson — better known as Fanny Stevenson.
Louis (as she called him) and Fanny met in Paris, “The City of Love.” She quickly became his muse, but she suddenly returned to California. Louis, having not enough money of his own, saved for three years to follow her. Eventually, they reunited, married in May 1880 in San Francisco, and immediately left for their honeymoon in Napa Valley.
This is the period of RLS’s life explored in our film Death Is No Bad Friend. So what better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day than by supporting our Indiegogo campaign?
