Saturday at 7:15pm: Director David Farrier will do an in-person Q&A after the screening
Is Michael Organ the most mysterious man in New Zealand, or is he just the most annoying? A simple investigation into a parking lot scam leads down a deep and dark rabbit hole of half-truths, veiled threats and toxic personalities in this riveting documentary from journalist and filmmaker David Farrier.
Farrier, whose previous film Tickled became a global sensation for exposing the dark underbelly of competitive endurance tickling, faces off against his greatest foe yet in Mister Organ, an enthralling and bizarre tale that finds Farrier in a dangerous game of cat and mouse with a mysterious con man who is wreaking havoc on his New Zealand town.
“Fascinating, Sinister. Hilarious.” — Film Inquiry
“Mister Organ is a remarkable film: A comedic horror of a documentary, a simple piece of investigative journalism descending into madness, and a spotlight on the human spirit’s capacity for darkness.” — Paste
