Indie Trailer Sunday: Zach Galifianakis Presents 'Craigslist Joe' Doc
"Reality is far stranger than any fiction Hollywood can come up with." Today's worth-watching indie trailer that debuted recently on Apple is for a documentary executive produced by Zach Galifianakis titled Craigslist Joe, about a "regular Joe" named Joe who decided to live entirely off of craigslist. While that sounds a bit goofy at the start, the trailer goes on to show there seems to be a heartwarming, emotional side to this, about how people care for others, as well as the generosity and adventures that come from this kind of social experiment. It looks better than I was expecting, give it a shot, you might find yourself interested.
Watch the official trailer for Joseph Garner's documentary Craigslist Joe, in high def via Apple:
In a time when America's economy was crumbling and the sense of community was in question, one guy left everything behind to see if he could survive solely on the support and goodwill of the 21st century's new town square: craigslist. Armed with only a laptop, cell phone, toothbrush, and the clothes on his back--alongside the hope that community was not gone but just had shifted--Joseph began his journey. For 31 December days and nights, everything in his life would come from the craigslist website. CLJ Films is releasing Joseph Garner's Craigslist Joe in limited theaters + iTunes/VOD on August 3rd this summer.
