THE INSTITUTE | Screening & Filmmakers Talk (Doc Night at The New Parkway)
2012 / NR / 92 minutes
THE INSTITUTE is a feature-length documentary which examines a San Francisco-based Alternate Reality Game, where thousands of participants got more than they bargained for. Told from the players' perspectives, the film looks over the precipice at an emergent new art form where the real world and fiction narratives merge to create unforeseen and often unsettling unsettling consequences. ~ Spencer McCall
The film's Director Spencer McCall and Producer and Star Jeff Hull will host a discussion following the film's screening!
