Watch Starvecrow Trailer, A Dark Demented Love Story For the Digital Age

Universally acknowledged as the world’s first “Selfie” movie, STARVECROW appears as an assembly of “stolen” smartphone and “hacked” CCTV footage. A dark demented love story that Munro Films are releasing later this month and today we get a look at the movies UK Trailer.

The movie was originally 69 hours then cut to 84 minutes.Improvised throughout, the actors play their own names, contribute to their storylines and character development, filming themselves and each other using smartphones.

This “Cast-Sourced” approach means there’s no director of photography or traditional film crew, no production designer, no set builder, no special effects and no elaborate post-production.

The focus is on “real life” acting and story-telling. Piecing together the narrative's jigsaw. Blurring fact and fiction.

STARVECROW is the story of Ben and Jess. Ben is a control-freak, charmer, abuser and warped product of the digital age.He films everything everywhere.

Jess is fresh out of rehab.Their worlds are dominated by each other but Jess needs some space and time apart. She's invited by her friends to their house in the woods for the weekend.

People arrive and the party kicks off, but not everyone attending has been invited.

STARVECROW is a disturbing look at obsession, narcissism, and complex relationships, where friendships and families are irreversibly broken.

Filmed across two years at various locations including London, Venice Beach, Geneva, Rome and Norway (and some woods near Hastings) STARVECROW features a mix of established actors and talented young newcomers, including an appearance by Downton Abbey’s Jeremy Swift, who stars alongside Rock'n'Rolla’s David Bark-Jones and The Pillars of the Earth’s Skye Lourie.

Inspired by Lars Von Trier's Dogme 95, STARVECROW pioneers a new, disruptive genre of film-making known as HYPEREAL.Not for the faint-hearted.

Starvecrow is getting a UK cinema release from 24th November, with the world premiere taking place the same day at London's ICA. Tickets for the ICA screening with filmmaker Q&A + DJ set and live element are available from https://www.ica.art/whats-on/starvecrow-qa
Immediately following the Q&A, the DJ set and live element will be provided by the film’s soundtrack composer, Noel Watson (NTS/Places and Spaces).
