AMERICA THE MENTAL - 2009 - USA
"Meet Smitty, a comedian who really kills!"
America The Mental is the story of a German documentary director and crew who come to the USA to make a documentary about artists in NY and end up finding a struggling stand-up comic. They soon discover that the comedians day job is much more interesting than his artistic aspirations, he is a drug enforcer for a living. Soon our director and crew become too close to their subject and become part of the story themselves, and even become a part of 'America The Mental'.
The first film from the team behind the the 2011 short "Year Zero" in competition at the Tribeca Film Festival 2011.

If you like the film please donate. We would like to make a sequel/remake/reboot with a higher budget.
We really made this for no money with no script, it was all improvised.
