 (SCREENPLAY, 2017) DRIB — costume, fictive branding of fake energy drink brand and prop-design for director and writer Kristoffer Borgli. Premiered at SXSW, TX and CPH:DOX, DK. Thanks to Kristoffer and Bacon productions for a wonderful collaboration. DRIB available on iTunes and Amazon. “This film is about the synthetic copies of real things. It’s the simulacra theory: PC Music is like a blanket on top of the whole film” DRIB is more than an energy drink. As the advertising puts it, DRIB is a pro-disability, anti-bullying, post-gender and all-inclusive brand for the “everyone consumer”. It quenches your thirst, it’s fun to chant, and it’s a sweet shortcut to superhuman strength at the small price of a chemically-induced headache.Just one thing: it doesn’t exist. DRIB, the drink, is the fictional commodity at the centre of DRIB, the debut feature from Kristoffer Borgli. It all comes down to a legal loophole. In 2014, the Norwegian director’s friend, a performance artist called Amir Asgharnejad, was flown to LA by a marketing firm to be the face of an energy drink. Amir had recently gone viral for being beaten up on camera, and this company aimed to cash in on his internet fame: they were to leak the content, then axe the campaign, and finally profit from the free publicity.Unbeknownst to the ad execs, Amir faked his fight videos, and his trip to LA is a hilarious disaster when the violence can’t be recreated. Borgli loved the story so much, he pitched a movie version to Amir. To bypass NDAs he suggested the high-profile energy drink’s name could be changed, and that’s why we have DRIB. More importantly, it’s why we have DRIB.The resultant film is a sort of meta documentary. Some of it’s certainly real, and other aspects are unclear. For the movie-within-the-movie, Amir plays himself, but everyone else is an actor (co-star Brett Gelman needs to be a Bond villain). Occasionally, Amir will break the fourth wall to comment on Borgli’s direction. There are bloopers within the film that seem scripted, and there are scripted re-enactments that seem entirely improvised. You wonder how much of it actually happened. But if it’s this funny and subversive, does that really matter? Read full article www.dazeddigital.com
