Q&A after screening!

Logline: Renee Hawthorne is a doctoral candidate at a top ranked psychology program when her life is derailed by a psychotic breakdown that leaves her hearing personifications of her compartmentalized identity.

Abstract: Conspiracy Theorist is an intimate portraiture of a fictional grad on the verge of a quarter life crises. In the sobering take on black girl magic, cosmic surrealism attempts to break from a cold clinical frame of psychotic delusion. The narrative relies on comedic experimental play to interrogate the subjugated position of a mental health patient. The larger series will explore the subjective gaps of scientific inquiry while navigating queer spatiality; teetering a thin line between reality and fiction CT blurs the fabric of a a clouded positive reality via pseudo-documentary.
