Synopsis

Independent Filmmaker Caveh Zahedi is trying to make a television show. He persuades BRIC TV, a Brooklyn non-profit Arts organization, to finance a television show whose premise is that every episode will be about the making of the previous episode. In the process of creating the show, everything can—and does—go wrong. The cast, a who’s who of Brooklyn’s independent filmmaking community, includes Alex Karpovsky, Eleonore Hendricks, Dustin Defa, and Onur Tukel.

Quotes

"Holy shit…This is groundbreaking and scary as fuck."
– Jay Duplass, Director of Togetherness, Cyrus and The Puffy Chair

"Terrifying."
– Rick Alverson, Director of Entertainment and The Comedy

"The Show About the Show has more to say, and teach, about business, family, marriage, art, fear, bureaucracy and political correctness than anything I’ve seen in ages."
Joe Swanberg, director of Easy and Drinking Buddies 

"Caveh is his own genre, and in his own mystical league--he's not the only filmmaker out there who thinks that navel-gazing solipsism will produce great art, but he's the only one who's right. The Show About the Show is riveting and hilarious and I hope he keeps doing it forever."

–Andrew Bujalski, director of Funny Ha Ha, Computer Chess and Results

"Better than Star Wars"
Bill Morrison, director of Decasia and The Great Flood

 "I could not recommend this show any higher."
- Azazel Jacobs, director of Doll and Em, Terri and Moma's Man

"A delightful mixture of improv comedy and self-reflexive storytelling unlike anything else out there."
- Eric Kohn, IndieWire
