Teasing the line between fact and fiction, this quasi-autobiographical road trip comedy follows filmmaker Alex Karpovsky (playing a version himself) as he tours across the southern United States with his feature “Woodpecker” (a film he actually made in 2008). Fresh off a breakup with his long-term girlfriend, Alex’s bruised ego is perhaps a bit too receptive to the connections he makes on the road: he ends up meeting an estranged friend and having a one night stand with an obsessive fan, both of whom tag along for a series of misadventures. Karpovsky’s prolific output on the micro-budget film scene (with several films to his credit as well as roles in “Beeswax” and “Tiny Furniture,” TCFF ‘10) has given him plenty of fodder for poking fun at himself and the American indie film scene at large, with characteristic dry wit and low-key charm.


Scheduled to Appear: Director Alex Karpovsky.
