The Conspiracy

Found-footage mixes with YouTube

Beginning with World Trade Center-style towers, Christopher MacBride’s ingenious thriller muddies the waters between fiction and fact to create an original spin on the tired found-footage genre.

Documentary makers Aaron (Aaron Poole) and Jim (James Gilbert) follow conspiracy theorist Terrance G (Alan C. Peterson), who preaches the usual patter linking JFK, 9/11, Bilderberg et al – and then abruptly disappears.

Shot on the fly and hastily assembled, their ensuing film intercuts with real-world interviews and YouTube clips, for a result that is plausible and chilling.
