PLAYDURIZM

 

directed by Gem Deger

 

 

 

 When a teenager finds himself caught in a glitchy-glitzy reality with his onscreen male idol, he does all he can to be possessed by this man and ignore the violent clues of how he got there.

 

 

Something happens. Something the best of us would want to forget.

And that’s exactly what Demir does when he wakes up like a blank canvas, with his entire past forgotten and a stranger with a pet pig sharing his new fancy display -style home. But he couldn’t care less about the black-out or the TVness of this reality - because the stranger is not strange at all - he is Andrew,

a vision of Hollywood holiness in a man. And an unscrupulous auctioneer with a dark passion no less.

By accepting the hand of friendship extended by Andrew, Demir does everything he can to be possessed by this man and ignore the violent clues of how he got there.

DIRECTOR

Gem Deger is a self-made multi-media artist born in 1997 in Konak, Turkey. A pop culture and art fanatic, he also shot several home- made short LGBT films and music videos in his homeland before moving to Prague, Czech Republic in order to develop freely a more subversive form of expression and find the essential collaborators to work with on his debut feature film PLAYDURIZM, a provocative take on his generation's blurred lines between Reality and Art, the celebrity worship syndrome, and the pursuit of self-acceptance in a censorious society.
