Vidiots welcomes filmmaker Vera Drew for a screening of the film that almost never saw the light of a projector – The People’s Joker. A brilliant DIY masterpiece of mixed media, absurdism, and beautifully human pathos, this film is as bonkers as it is genuinely moving. A painfully unfunny aspiring clown (Vera Drew as Joker the Harlequin) grapples with her gender identity while unsuccessfully attempting to join the ranks of Gotham City’s sole comedy program in a world where comedy has been outlawed. Uniting with a ragtag team of rejects and misfits, Joker the Harlequin forms an illegal anti-comedy troupe that puts her on a collision course with the devious caped crusader controlling the city. Originally pulled from the Toronto International Film Festival for copyright infringement, this little film went up against the DC overlords and won! Thanks parody laws! So run, don’t walk for this singular cinematic experience – you’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll never look at Batman the same way again!
