We had about 100 hours of footage, and I thought we had enough for a ten-minute documentary, says co-director Mitch Dickman of the film versions genesis. The next thing I know, we made a feature-length film. DNC Mediamockracy screens tonight at 7 p.m. and again at 6 p.m. on Sunday, with the message If you have a problem, try to do something about it deeply imprinted in its vision.
The second film, A Test of Wills, is a ninety-minute fiction also directed by Dickman that tells the story of a screenwriter on the slide who finds his story being written out in scenes come to life; the casting of screenwriter William Hahn in the leading role adds a point of unexpected realism to the plot. Filmed in what Dickman calls a quick, guerrilla, small-crew style, Test screens at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
