mockumentary




Here we go again, another Hollywood movie (well it’s sort of indie, but still being released by a big studio) making conspiracy theorists out to be completely crazy. On the other hand, the trailer makes it look a whole lot better than the Mel Gibson attempt at the same.

The Conspiracy is directed by Christopher McBride and features Aaron Poole, James Gilbert, Peter Apostolopoulos, Angela Besharah, and Laura de Carteret. The official synopsis: “A documentary about conspiracy theories takes a horrific turn after the filmmakers uncover an ancient and dangerous secret society.”

Rather than being set in a Slough paper manufacturing firm, ‘The Ministry’ is based in the war-torn country’s Ministry of Garbage. The mock-documentary has been filmed in exactly the same way as Ricky Gervais’ BBC comedy.

Footage of the characters addressing the camera directly, as if being interviewed, is interspersed with scenes of them apparently going about their working lives. The comedy, which will be broadcast on Afghanistan’s largest commercial television station Tolo TV later this year, features a sleazy manager, a dozy security guard and a man-hating female secretary.
