Man Underground — Trailer


added: Fri, Jun 23rd '17

Winner of the Best First Feature at the 2016 Fantasia Film Festival, "Man Underground" is an offbeat mystery thriller about a reclusive UFO conspiracy theorist and retired government research geologist (played by comic actor George Basil, from Netflix's "Flaked" and TBS' "Wrecked") who has asked an amateur filmmaker (Andy Rocco) and a local waitress (Pamela Fila) to make a biographical movie about his life, in which he re-enacts the horrifying encounters he had with aliens.

Shot in 17 days with a budget of $35,000, "Man Underground" marks the auspicious film debut of writers-directors Michael Borowiec and Sam Marine, who previously directed several music videos, working under their New York-based video production company, Millennium Blonde.

The film has been on the festival circuit since premiering at last year's Cinequest, where it received mostly positive reviews. It's now slated for a July 14th release.

In a small town in upstate NY, Willem Koda, a retired geologist and alien conspiracy theorist, struggles to find an audience for his controversial beliefs. After befriending Flossie, a local waitress and aspiring actress, and Todd, an amateur filmmaker living off his Uncle's inheritance, Willem decides to make a low-budget movie about his life, re-enacting scenes from his crumbled marriage and his violent encounters with aliens while working for the US Government. As the movie gets made, Flossie and Todd watch as Willem confronts his past and grows increasingly paranoid about his future.
