America 2019 is a nation adrift in half-truths and cover-ups. From his tinfoil room, singer Tris McCall interrupts your regularly scheduled broadcast to explore the dark alleys of American paranoia, from the ludicrous to the disturbingly real. Unspooling a knotted thread of archival footage, McCall takes the viewer through the history of conspiracy theories from vaccines to the moon landing to the Kennedy assassination and beyond. It may seem ridiculous, but has this very public flood of delusions allowed real conspiracies to take place right in front of our eyes? As the video fast forwards to WMDs, Election 2016, and our increasingly uncertain future, it’s not so funny anymore. As McCall sings, “It’s all connected…unless it is not.”

Director’s bio:

George Andrew Pasles makes music videos on (and occasionally with) a shoestring. His first project, a sci-fi epic in miniature called “Mission to Mars”, won Best Music Video 2018 at the Jersey Shore Film Festival and several other festivals. The follow-up, “Conspiracy Theory”, is a pop culture geyser set in a paranoiac’s tin foil hideout. Moving from dark comedy to darkest horror, Pasles is currently shooting a Lovecraft-inspired short, “Strange Fiction”, set in 1920s New York City.
