View the movie teaser here:
Admission is free and open to the public. There’s no need for tickets, so bring your friends. There will be a Q&A with director Andrea Marini and artist Joey Skaggs following the screening.
Famed for such media fictions as Celebrity Sperm Bank, Cathouse for Dogs, Fat Squad, and Portofess, all reported as fact by prestigious journalists, Joey Skaggs is one of America’s great satirists and a spirited advocate for media literacy. When he decides to pull off the most demanding hoax of his career, director Andrea Marini gives us a unique view into the mind of this most unconventional man. The result is an emotional and humorous journey of will and determination.
No topic is out-of-bounds for Joey Skaggs. And no media outlet is safe from his tactics. Having perpetrated hilarious hoaxes satirizing our cultural fixations with sex & sexism, racism, intolerance, religion, war, technology and social injustice, with his new hoax he tackles the ethics of transgenics and genetic modification.
