In the tradition of SCTV and Kids In The Hall comes WHO IS KK DOWNEY?, the feature-length debut from Canada’s latest comedy geniuses at Kidnapper Films.  An Official Selection at the Philadelphia Film Festival, Winner of the Best Feature award at the Boston Underground Film Festival and the New Vision Award at Cinequest, WHO IS KK DOWNEY? opened with the highest per screen average in Canada.  And now, IndiePix® Films delivers this hilarious examination of media hype and hipster ideology inspired by recent, real-life literary hoaxes to U.S. audiences on DVD.  Available on November 3, this soon-to-be cult-classic comes to stores in an extras-laden edition, featuring deleted scenes, outtakes, audio commentary and more!

Over the last ten years, Kidnapper Films — troupe members Darren Curtis, Matt Silver and Pat Kiely – have diligently and creatively worked out of their hometown of Montreal, producing a series of short, comedic films.  “We decided enough with the short films.  Let’s step up to the table and produce a feature,” says Kiely.   “After James Frey, and J.T. LeRoy, and all those others hoaxes, we thought ‘why not make a really dumb, fun comedy about literary hoaxes.’  So that’s what we did.”

WHO IS KK DOWNEY ? follows the story of two wannabes who decided they were sick and tired of trying to make a name for themselves the old-fashioned way.  Terrance is trying to make it as a rock star, while Theo dreams of getting his first book published: ‘Truck Stop Hustler,’ a racy look at life on the streets as a junkie prostitute.  After a string of humiliations by both publishers and music critics, the two hatch a plan to turn Theo’s fictional book into an autobiography by having Terrance dress up as the story’s protagonist, KK Downey, and claim all the events as having happened to him.  All of a sudden the book nobody wanted becomes an overnight literary sensation, and the duo has realized their dreams of fame and fortune.  But at what price?
