Trailer for the Documentary Thriller THE CONSPIRACY
Here's a trailer to an interestingly fun looking fake documentary style thriller called The Conspiracy. The story follows a couple of filmmakers who end up uncovering a dangerous ancient secret society. The movie was written and directed by Christopher MacBride, and it's set to play at Fantastic Fest.
I find most conspiracy theories entertaining, and many of them would make for a good movie. So it's kind of cool someone went out and made one. As you'll see from the trailer it also looks like a pretty cool and interesting story. I'd watch it.
Here's a detailed description of the movie:
When two young filmmakers select a crazed conspiracy theorist as the subject of their new work, the task seems simple enough: Befriend him, gain his trust, and let his theories speak for themselves. But things prove much more complicated than that. Despite his wild street preaching, their subject proves to be an articulate and intelligent man; one prone to seeing patterns others don’t, sure, but hardly the expected lunatic. Listen long enough and his arguments even start to make a certain sort of sense. It’s enough to make you wonder if maybe, somewhere, there’s some basis to what he’s saying...
And then he simply disappears. No word. No trace. Just gone.
While one of the filmmaking duo is prepared to walk away, the other becomes obsessed. This should not be possible. People don’t just disappear. Not unless someone wants them to. What if he was correct? What if he was on the verge of exposing some greater scheme? And what if he was taken? And so begins an obsessive effort to reconstruct his work, an effort that points the duo to a hidden society, a high powered retreat and networking organization for the political and business elite.
A meticulously researched and cannily constructed bit of work, THE CONSPIRACY systematically blurs the lines between fact and fiction, deconstructing the distinction between facts and news, news and propaganda. Using one of the most persistent memes of our time – the conspiracy theory – to create a fact-based thriller, THE CONSPIRACY is more than just entertainment. It’s a sly commentary on a world in which the medium really has become the message, a world in which the most important question is not “What happened?” but “Who is telling us?”
