Trailer – ‘Protagonist’

6723poster.jpgHere’s a cool looking doc in the vein of Errol Morris’ ‘Fast, Cheap & Out of Control’ (maybe only in that it focuses on four people connected by a major theme). ‘Protagonist’, directed by Jessica Yu, seems to take as many liberties in regards to documentary technique as her previous film, ‘In the Realms of the Unreal’. The trailer treats us to some intriguing interview footage, combined with some Indian (or African?) inspired animation and a creepy puppet show. Definitely piqued my interest. Here’s the synopsis from Apple Trailers:

Protagonist ‘Explores extremism and the limits of certainty. Inspired by Greek drama, this visually inventive documentary weaves the stories of four men – a German terrorist, a bank robber, an “ex-gay” evangelist, and a martial arts student consumed by personal odysseys.’
