SAN FRANCISCO PREMIERE!
In a weekly, on-going fantasy role-playing game among a close group of friends, Scott has been serving as a sadistic and domineering Game Master since time immemorial. When one of the players – thanks to the pressure of adult problems like divorce - bows out of the quest, it’s time to find a replacement. Enter Miles. Miles is cool. He has a cool website. He has a cool girlfriend. He cracks jokes during the weekly campaigns. He’s even nice to his fellow players. In short, he’s everything that Scott isn’t. With Scott’s personal life uncontrollably bursting at the seams, he decides to focus on the REAL problem: exposing Miles as a complete fraud. ZERO CHARISMA is the most watch-through-your-fingers-and-think-about-your-life on-screen depiction of the simple graces, dead-end behaviors and complex motivations of “nerd culture”.
Starring Sam Eidson, Garrett Graham, Brock England, Anne Gee Byrd & Cyndi Williams.
Dirs: Katie Graham & Andrew Matthews.
2013. Digital. 97 mins.
This is as independent as independent film making gets. Please note that the film will be playing in the Little Roxie, although tickets are available at the regular box office.
For those interested, we'll find a nearby spot for a meal afterwards.
