Mister America

Tim Heidecker’s hilarious political mockumentary Mister America returns for an encore screening on October 9th!

The story follows a young filmmaker recording Tim Heidecker during the last month of his campaign for San Bernardino County District Attorney. Heidecker, who recently beat a murder charge for selling faulty e-cigarettes at an EDM festival, has mounted the campaign as an act of absurd revenge against the incumbent DA who, incidentally, attempted to prosecute him. Despite a checkered past and no legal qualifications, he attempts to win over voters by leaning into his personal likability. It does not go well.

Though set in the surreal world of Heidecker’s cult Adult Swim web series On Cinema, the film also offers plenty that will appeal to the uninitiated. With its razor-sharp take on ego, politics, and self-delusion, Mister America is sure to have general audiences and hardcore fans alike rolling with laughter. On top of that, this screening will feature exclusive content that can only be seen in theaters!
