A portrait. A disgraced Reality TV producer, waiting for a call. A room full of frames. But the frames don’t fit. The doctor says it’s all in his head – but it’s not, it’s here. He can’t sleep, he’s taken to pills, the phone should ring any second now.
Join him as he narrates his fall from grace and plots a path to redemption.
FRAMED is about a disgraced reality TV producer who plots a path to redemption. In a funny, dark and harrowing exploration of exploitation, populism, cancel culture and complicity, the producer becomes the product: the ringmaster becomes the freak, the judge becomes the judged.
At the end we must ask ourselves: who is the spotlight really on?
