Beacon Film Society: Fake It So Real

Tue, Sep 23, 2014
7:30 PM - 9:30 PM


We’re pumped to screen the slamtastic doc Fake It So Real, directed by one of Beacon’s very own, Mr. Robert Greene!

Fake It So Real dives head-first into the world of independent pro wrestling. Filmed over a single week leading up to a big show, the film follows a ragtag group of wrestlers in North Carolina, exploring what happens when the over-the-top theatrics of the wrestling ring collide with the realities of the working-class South.

The Independent declared Mr. Greene a “top filmmaker to watch” and he will be present for a Q&A following the screening.

“Greene reveals the Independent Millennium Wrestling Federation to be,if not the “great American art form,” at least an outpost of the great modern do-it-yourself American imagination!” — The New Yorker

“Nearly boundless entertainment!” — The Wall Street Journal

“A riveting vérité doc.” — The Village Voice

$5 @ door
