The F Word (2005)

Description[from Freebase]

The F Word is a feature fiction/documentary ("a genre sometimes referred to as ficumentary") hybrid film from 2005, directed by Jed Weintrob and produced by Christian Ditlev Bruun and Nick Goldfarb. The film was selected to world premiere at the 2005 Tribeca Film Festival in New York. Joe Pace, a radio talk show host whose program, The F Word, is being shut down by the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) after racking up over $1 million in unpaid indecency fines. On his last day on the air, which coincides with the last day of the 2004 Republican National Convention, Joe sets off to broadcast his own one-man march through Manhattan. Combining fictional scenes - written by over thirty different writers - set among actual protests with documentary footage of people Joe meets along the way, the film weaves together a seamless narrative. In a uniquely interactive writing process, each day new scenes were written and appropriated to upcoming events and in response to the previous day's footage. It is often impossible to tell the difference between fiction and reality. The concept is loosely inspired by Medium Cool by Haskell Wexler.
