Feature Fiction | 84' | 2021 | Venezuela - US

Directed by: Carla Forte
Produced by: Bistoury Physical Theatre and Film

In this irreverent critique of the entertainment industry, filmmaker Carla Forte follows the struggle of Miki and his friends (Mimi & Donald) as they try to make sense of their lives after being laid off from the happiest corporation on earth.

Miki, a heavy smoker and very depressed who once was a popular fixture in the entertainment world, reveals the sad, excessive and abusive reality behind a world of manufactured dreams that was anything but dreamy. His friends Mimi and Donalt provide testament to such harsh reality. Miki Maniac takes a stand against all those unattainable dreams.
