The Toronto True Crime Film Festival billed as the only festival completely devoted to the true crime genre of film, unveiled the films selected for its second annual edition this June 14th to 15th, 2018.
NAME OF FILM: MOPE
DIRECTOR(S): Lucas Heyne
STARRING: Nathan Stewart-Jarrett, Kelly Sry, Brian Huskey
GENRE: Crime Film
SYNOPSIS: In the world of pornography, the term “mope” refers to a low-level, wannabe porn actor who perhaps isn’t quite well endowed or otherwise attractive enough to achieve the success granted to “bigger”-name porn stars. Stephen Clancy Hill and Herbert Wong, respectively known by their porn alter egos Steve Driver and Tom Dong, were two such mopes—real-life best friends attempting to live the impossible porno dream, but the blurred line between reality and delusion ultimately sent them both tumbling down a path of destruction.
The provocative Sundance-sensation Hail Satan? opens the 2019 Boston Underground Film Festival chronicling the rise of one of America’s most controversial religious movements, The Satanic Temple.
