Munro Films Announce Special Screening with DJ set/live element with Noel Watson for Cast-Sourced and Improvised #STARVECROW
A DARK DEMENTED LOVE STORY
With its release imminent, The Fan Carpet are delighted to announce a special screening at ICA on November 24 with Q&A and DJ set/live element with Noel Watson (NTS) for #StarveCrow, the extraordinary improvised, cast-sourced film, courtesy of Munro Films!
STARVECROW is the story of Ben and Jess. Ben is a control-freak, charmer, abuser and warped product of the digital age. He films everything everywhere. Jess is fresh out of rehab. Their worlds are dominated by each other, but Jess needs some space and time apart. She’s invited by her friends to their house in the woods for the weekend. People arrive and the party kicks off, but not everyone attending has been invited.

ABOUT THE FILM
STARVECROW is a disturbing look at obsession, narcissism, and complex relationships, where friends and families are irreversibly broken. Universally acknowledged as the world’s first selfie movie, STARVECROW appears as an assembly of “stolen” smartphone and “hacked” CCTV footage.
69 hours cut to 84 minutes.
Improvised throughout, the actors play their own names, contribute to their storylines and character development, filming themselves and each other using smartphones.
This cast-sourced approach means there is no director of photography or traditional film crew, no production designer, no set builder, no special effects and no elaborate post-production.
The focus is on real-life acting and story-telling. Piecing together the narrative’s jigsaw. Blurring fact and fiction.
Filmed across two years at various locations including London, Venice Beach, Geneva, Rome and Norway (and some woods near Hastings) STARVECROW is inspired by Lars von Trier’s Dogme 95 and pioneers a new, disruptive genre of filmmaking known as HYPEREAL.
