A Note from The Eyeslicer co-creator Dan Schoenbrun:

“This past December I started work on A SELF-INDUCED HALLUCINATION, my first feature documentary as a director. It was a project I had been obsessing over for years, and finally, the time had come for it to leave my brain. So in a manic burst of creative energy that lasted the seemingly endless New York winter, I transformed it from a dream into a film.

I’m still tinkering with the cut, but I’ve decided to give myself a deadline and world-premiere A SELF-INDUCED HALLUCINATION this June at Brooklyn’s Nitehawk Cinema. I’ve also decided to keep basically everything about the film a secret until the moment the lights go down in the theater. I like the idea of premiering my first film as a complete mystery to the world. I like the idea of an audience having no clue what they’re about to see as something I’ve spent countless hours working on plays for the first time. Maybe that’s all pretty silly and ill-advised, but it feels like a fun experiment to me and I hope you’ll come be a part of it.

All I’ll share about A SELF-INDUCED HALLUCINATION is this: it’s about the internet, and it’s quite strange.

I’ve invited Chris Osborn from D E E P to open the show with a program of experimental shorts about the internet. If you’re not familiar with D E E P, it’s an amazing series that collects the best experimental shorts, web videos, and art pieces unearthed from the darker side of the internet. So – come out on June 13th to see some incredible D E E P shorts about the internet, and then stay for my strange “mystery” first feature, also about the internet.

I hope to see you there.
