Storyline

Black Biscuit is a film that follows the life and times of today's misfits and rascals. A spiritual journey into societies myths. Chet is a freewheeling life model who begins working as a male escort in order to bring in some extra cash, as he concentrates on realizing his true dream of becoming a filmmaker. But his discipline and outlook on life begin to change, due to the new influences of his lifestyle, and the rewards and comforts of dirty money. He must face the question of choosing his destiny. Black Biscuit was created under the PINK8 manifesto - a new maverick way of creating raw, poetic, un-polished Punk Cinema. Shot on mobile phones and childrens cameras, and featuring an array of street superstars (homeless people, prostitutes, handicapped folk, and an ex child ping pong champion). The spirit of a generation gap has been defined like lightning in a bottle. Cinema will never be the same again. Written by Fabrizio Federico

Black Biscuit - new form of cinema
24 August 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Its a different type of film but is very rewarding. It's got a chaotic poetic feel. Federico used the Pink8 manifesto (read to understand about the manifesto)

http://pink8manifesto.blogspot.com/2011/08/pink8-film-manifesto.html

If your a fan of experimental cinema like Harmony Korine, Vincent Gallo, and Gus Van Sant you'll love this movie.

The plot focuses on the character of Chet which is played by the director Fabrizio Federico, but the film features many unique characters. Chet is a bit of a bum, not applying himself to any satisfying life direction, and slowly loses more and more of his morals. But one day he realizes that he would like to become a film maker. This is where the film becomes interesting. Federico creates a bizarre film within a film experience, but his cast aren't actors and he is also a first time director, so you actually see the making of the film at the same time. It's very unique, and has been labeled 'Gutter Film Making' and 'No Budget Film' but is in fact an unexpected and boundary pushing film.
