Director Statement

“You can hide from others, but you can’t hide from yourself.”  - Anonymous

Admittedly the premise of Flick is immature, however, I wanted to explore deeper themes of anxiety and isolation using a booger as the vehicle. Having an anxiety disorder, I know what it's like to get stuck in a hellish loop of obsessive thinking. I wanted to tell this story as a way of exorcising that feeling, but also have it serve as a cautionary tale against self-destructive habits.

But at the end of the day, it's a movie about a guy trying to flick a booger off his finger, so take it as you will.

About The Event

Ted Geoghegan 2017, USA, 91 mins

The War of 1812 has revived violent hostilities between the British and their erstwhile American colonial subjects. The powerful Mohawk nation of the New York region is divided as to whom they should stand by, and so they maintain a position of neutrality. They want no part in the killing – but the killing is coming to them. An impulsive attack on an American encampment has drawn the vengeful attentions of a ragged band of American military renegades, led by the vicious, racist Hezekiah Holt. Oak, Calvin, and their British lover Joshua flee into the woods so familiar to them, but the murderous musketeers on their trail will not be deterred. Not without the spilling of blood.
