Oh, that Adam Green, he just can’t stand to be left with any down time. It’s not quite a cinematic version of his Lake Room blog as we hear he’s also planning, but it’s a film nonetheless. The Wrong Ferarri, a biographical, comic misadventure of sorts, announced as early as August on his blog, is of course starring, directed and written by Adam Green.
The film shows that we creative types can really get down to brass tacks even without all the fine equipment we may think we need. The seemingly simple, yet awesome iPhone, was the only tool used to make this piece of digital comedy, touted as a “fast-paced rumination on ketamine, turning 30, dysfunctional relationships, touring the world, and more.”
Besides the auteur himself, The Wrong Ferarri features luminaries in film and music and more, from Macaulay Culkin, Devendra Banhart, Alia Shawkat (Arrested Development), Dev Hynes (Lightspeed Champion), Har Mar Superstar, Jack Dishel (Only Son, Moldy Peaches), BP Fallon, Cory Kennedy, Aleksa Palladino (Exitmusic, Boardwalk Empire), to members of the band Spacecamp, Adam Green’s mother, vocal work from Evan Dando (The Lemonheads) and more.
The film will be screened at Anthology Film Archives (32 2nd Avenue at 2nd St.) this week, but this may be a private invite-only affair. Keep an eye on their website and Adam Green’s own for details on where the film will be shown following its premiere.
