American Movie - Documentary (1999)
« on: February 27, 2013, 12:29:50 AM »

Documentary about an aspiring filmmaker's attempts to finance his dream project
by finally completing the low-budget horror film he abandoned years before.

On the northwest side of Milwaukee, Mark Borchardt dreams the American dream: for him, it's making movies.
Using relatives, local theater talent, slacker friends, his Mastercard, and $3,000 from his Uncle Bill, Mark strives over three years to finish "Covan," a short horror film.
His own personal demons (alcohol, gambling, a dysfunctional family) plague him, but he desperately wants to overcome self-doubt and avoid failure.
