It'd be a mistake for anyone to call one-time Monty Python member Terry Gilliam a conventional filmmaker, but with his new short, "The Wholly Family," the imaginative director is now trying something completely different: an online screening of the film, made possible by sponsor  The Guardian.

"The Wholly Family" follows an American family vacationing in Naples and the surreal visions of their young son after he steals a Pulcinella—the black masked unofficial mascot of the city—from a street cart.

The film will live stream on the Guardian's website starting at 7pm UK time on January 23rd, and will cost £1.99, available to anyone in the world (bar Italy).  Viewers who log in that night can also watch a live interview and Q&A with Gilliam. The film will be available online for two weeks. North American viewers can access it via guardiannews.com in the States.

    This is a great new way to watch/rent/buy films. Now independent filmmakers truly have a great way to build an audience for their films. If you want to see how it works, our new film, DELIVERED is already available on Facebook via the same company that will be bringing you Terry's film.
