"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.

We really made this for no money with no script, it was all improvised.

Now this was something totally wild, totally different. On the edge hehe. It is on the edge and it's fuc*ing loving it! It laughs in your face, with your preconceptions & expectations. It throws them back at you and, well ... you enjoy the experience.
At least, I did. Thoroughly!
The comedy was cutting. Very funny. Smitty: Antihero for us all.
What can I say...! I would love to see more in the future.
Thanks a lot for the experience and good luck with the resequelboot
