LO-BUDGET MAYHEM: C’est du Cinéma

ALL OF THE PEOPLE, dir. Daisy Higgins

High concept, no budget movie-making. From wannabe Godards to a jittering Humphrey Bogart, animated psychedelia to the theatre of small talk, these filmmakers build whole worlds and toy with film itself as a medium. Expect big laughs, music videos, a little romance and curiosities that come from the heart.
