FINDING FILMAN

A documentary team follows a delusional soft-core porn actor who seeks to cross over into the mainstream acting world. Regis Filman is a soft core porn actor who has recently been submitted for consideration for an AVN Award for his performance in an adult film entitled 'The Buttler’. The potential nomination leads him to believe that he is ‘more’ than just a soft core star and he seeks to 'cross over' into the mainstream performance world by showcasing his skills as a ‘method actor’.

HEADPRICKLES

If you are being bothered by intrusive thoughts, such as: How many plastic bags are optimal for packing one banana?; What ensures victory in the skeleton competition?; Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going? Or Should I shower with my socks on? Will I face any consequences?--then - that's great! “Headprickles” will give you an answer to at least one of these questions. The film consists of over a dozen animated enigrams connected by the motif of being trapped in a loop of absurdity. In visually colorful labyrinth of observations, the protagonists try to make sense of nonsense - or they stay mindlessly in it. HEADPRICKLES probably won’t change the world, will not cause a shock or a revolution, but - maybe – it will make audience’s heads a little itchy during the projection?
