TAPES FROM THE REVOLUTIONARY

What is it like to see the world through someone else’s eyes?

Filmmaker, Scott Willis discovers Andy, a self proclaimed communist revolutionary that documents his life on a Hi-8 camcorder. Aiming to understand the purpose behind the tapes Willis picks up his camera, however Andy has his own agenda for the project.

Tapes from The Revolutionary is a humorous unconventional documentary that turns the lens on itself an examines the filmmaking process.

“Watching two men struggle to have control, to find meaning, and to create art feels like a mirror back on anyone who struggles to create in a world where they have little control. This documentary has a real power in the un-actualized nature of it’s original intention. Perhaps in the un-actualized nature of both the subject and the filmmaker we can learn something about how we approach our lives.” ~Kurt Shrader 

“A fantastic film; engaging and funny.” ~Lars Johnson
