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

The cinema of the future
27 September 2011 | by monsoon-171-917737See all my reviews

When ever I find it hard to put something into words I usually take it as a good sign. This film did that for me. It allows you to enter a world that is very colorful, both with characters, visuals, and ideas. I think the director has really put his stamp across the movie. Sometimes there's too many ideas coming from all directions, but you will be dented. Black Biscuit will be around for many years because thats how long it's going to take people to come to terms with it's range. Maverick film making has few champions lately but I think Fabrizio Federico will be among those directors that push cinema into new directions. Definitely a cult movie in the making, just hope it's appreciated sooner than later.
