Looking for Abraham
Single screen, 3 minutes 52 seconds
Filmed in Santa Monica, Los Angeles, Looking for Abraham is a four-minute excerpt from a stand up routine captured during happy hour in a European hostel. The comic cultivates a relationship between the audience and himself that unnervingly veers between public performance and private confession. In an environment where this self-effacing routine could be his genuine act, the audience sits uncomfortably as they try to draw the line between fiction and reality.
Looking For Abraham was selected for New Contemporaries 2005
