One evening only. With a recorded intro and 10+ minute post-feature Q&A with Tim Heidecker & Gregg Turkington.
A young filmmaker follows Tim Heidecker during the last month of his campaign for San Bernardino County District Attorney in this absurd mockumentary from the creators of On Cinema — Mister America. Heidecker, who recently beat a murder charge for selling faulty e-cigarettes at an EDM festival, has mounted the campaign as an act of absurd revenge against the current DA, whom he faced in court. Despite a checkered past and no legal qualifications, he attempts to win over voters by leaning into his personal likability. It does not go well.
