The Nightingale is pleased to present I DON’T CARE, the second feature length film by Chicago-based film/videomaker Casey Puccini!
More poseur than visionary, a filmmaker struggles to keep his creativity alive as he bumbles through the production of his sophomore film. Instead of rising to the challenge, he conflicts with his cast and crew, inevitably becoming a pathetically manipulative prick who no one can stand being around. A cast of Chicago talents (including Sasha Gioppo, Bryn Packard, Kevin Stangler, Christine Vrem-Ydstie, Brian Wiebe, Cameron Worden, Casey Puccini, and more) star in this dark comedy about the consequences of pernicious narcissism developed from unchecked mediocrity in the world of independent film. (TRT 103 minutes)
Casey Puccini is a film/videomaker making work that plays with autobiography, fictionalizing his life to create sardonic narratives about aggressively self-centered people. Along with making his own films, Casey also shoots, edits, and performs in his peers’ work, and educates significantly more talented people at several institutions around Chicago, IL. He made this film to help identify the type of person he really, really, really does not want to become.
Organized by Jesse Malmed and Erika Raberg.
