(Nathan & Zach Hamer, 2012)
Local Sightings Film Festival
Saturday, Sep 29 at 07:15PM
In the vein of Christopher Guest's great mockumentaries (Best in Show, Waiting for Guffman) comes the new collaboration from the Hamer Brothers, Re-enactors.
Jed Hankley lives to relive. From Civil War battles to old western shootouts, Jed stops at nothing to create the most "historical" re-enactments. When Jed is offered his dream job, a temp tour-guide at the Milltown Pioneer Village, he must set aside his differences with his old rival, Douglas Marshall-Pickett, to create the most "authentic" experience possible. But will Jed and Doug's hardcore re-enacting standards clash with the cushy lifestyle of the Pioneer Village campers? For Jed and Doug, the summer has now become 1866; for the campers, it's become a living nightmare.
