The Plagiarists

Dir. Peter Parlow
With Michael “Clip” Payne, Lucy Kaminsky, Eamon Monaghan
2019, 76min

 

This puckish lo-fi provocation is at once a heady consideration of race, authenticity, and authorship and a sly meta-satire on the white, bourgeois pretensions of so much American indie cinema. When their car breaks down in a snowstorm, a white aspiring artist couple are taken in for the night by an older black man (Parliament Funkadelic’s Michael “Clip” Payne) for an enigmatic evening that will ultimately leave them shaken to their core and questioning everything.

Q&A with co-writers and producers James N. Kienitz Wilkins & Robin Schavoir and producer Paul Dallas.

 
Personal Truth

Dir. Charlie Lyne
2018, 18min

 

In the wake of Pizzagate, Charlie Lyne examines a sensationalist fake news sex scandal from his childhood and our collective appetite for conspiracy theories.
