Made in 1997, this film chronicles one man's attempt to make a movie about himself watching a movie.
Shot on a lark in four 4 hour days over the summer, this movie, despite it's seemingly banal plot, found worldwide distribution when it was first released on VHS. Making its way into video stores (when those still existed), it eventually saw release on DVD and then Video On Demand via Amazon.
Cinema Epoch recently "cleaned up" this film and is releasing it to the public. In keeping with Watching a Movie's minimalistic tone, they have priced it at the lowest rental price for a feature film in the history of streaming. You can check out the trailer here:
Cinema Epoch President Gregory Hatanaka says,
"We are extremely proud to be Watching a Movie to a new generation of moviegoer who will discover what good cinema verite is really like."
The two companies have announced production plans for a sequel to be set in Mexico.
