Robert Greene's "Fake It So Real"
Robert Greene's "Fake It So Real"

In Robert Greene's "Fake It So Real," the documentarian follows a close-knit group of amateur wrestlers in North Carolina who engage in a series of wild physical competitions under the guise of flamboyant and often highly amusing alter egos. While stylistically quite different from Greene's previous effort, the understated "Kati With an I," his new project similarly focuses on alienated people struggling to reconcile their fantasies with reality. Watch an exclusive clip below.

"Fake It So Real" opens Friday at New York's reRun Gastropub Theater ahead of a DVD release from Factory 25.
