Hey Charlie, 2019

short, 12 minutes

Hey Charlie is a short hallucinatory film featuring renowned screenwriter and director Charlie Kaufman. Nearing the end of his stay at an artists’ retreat, Charlie’s daily ritual walk in the woods turns into an ordeal of repetition and delusion. These interruptions – either real or imagined – break into his consciousness, causing anxiety and panic as he contemplates how much (or little) he has accomplished during his time in residence.
