Filmfest 2008

Lionel and Tin are on an ill-fated but well-scripted journey into the depths of the American psyche. Recently escaped from Trinity Psyciatric Center, an 'alternative' institution for the wayward, the pair hits the road on a mission from God. Appearing in form of an aging cowboy named Don, the Almighty enlists Lionel and Tin to inscribe the NEW WAYS TO BE (addendum to the Ten Commandments) in order to save the world from its ultimate destruction, rumored to be soon. Plagued by their own madness, they begin to uncover their own dark past which might ultimately lead to their undoing, or, at the very least, a serious rewrite. "Ibid was originally written in 7 days as an experiment toward my own creation myth. Though the roots of those 7 days remain the story took on a larger trajectory when I threatened myself into making it. The writing, production and post-production of this particular project was like none other I’ve ever experienced. It was made by a handful of talented and committed mental patients."
