Great satire
3 September 2002 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

Wonderful short film about people's fascination on entertainment. Even before the US had Survivor, de Leon introduced the concept of seeing people living in squalor and depravity as a feast for the masses' enjoyment. A casting call for the next set of actors in a propaganda film becomes the setting for trouble when the would-be performers begin to rebel against their director. When the director notices the pain and hopelessness in the hapless applicants, he comes up with a bright idea: why not sell misery as entertainment? Sure enough, his concept becomes a hit!
