Storyline

A genre-defying comedy about the unreliability of memory. It deconstructs its own narrative as it crisscrosses between fiction, documentary and dreams. The film is a series of interlinking puzzles - an unsolved Hollywood murder; the search for the origins of a legendary joke; and the mystery of why the filmmaker's own family left him for dead. Historical figure Ayn Rand, movie actor Cesar Romero, and television journalist Mike Wallace turn up as additional pieces of the puzzle. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

The David Whiting Story marks the feature directing, writing and producing debut of 69-year-old Walter Reuben, the oldest-debuting feature film director in world cinema. His early short films feature prominent members of the Austin, Texas, arts scene including SXSW co-founder Louis Black, who appeared in Reuben's first short How Others Remember Us (1985), and Richard Linklater's Slacker costar Gina Lalli, whose presence similarly graces Reuben's From Bad to Worse (1986), and How to Lose Weight (1987).
