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

It seems like I've seen something that doesn't fit into any categories. The film connected with me, maybe because I've been in the same situation as a lot of these characters. I guess Im a Black Biscuit. There's definitely a lot to take in, especially the views from notorious cult leaders, but under these circumstances they make sense. The strongest quality about the film is that it makes you want to create, and that is it's biggest virtue. Your not going to see Oscar performances, but what you do get is a ton of magical slice of life vignettes. The director is without a doubt slightly mad, but isn't that true of all great left field artists ? I see a cult being built around this film.
