Exclusive: Trailer for Brooklyn Art Scene Satire ‘Hellaware’

Exclusive: Trailer for Brooklyn Art Scene Satire 'Hellaware'

The world of pretentious NYC scenester artists is always ripe for a send up, and the new indie “Hellaware,” from Michael M. Bilandic, mashes up that universe with a dose of reality from a band of rural Delaware rap rockers.

Today we’ve got the exclusive trailer for the film, which stars Keith Poulson as struggling artist Nate, who seeks inspiration outside of the city when he discovers ICP-esque rap rockers (rock rappers?) Young Torture Killaz on YouTube, and sets off to find and photograph them. It’s a bitterly funny and cynical take on the nature of commercial art, and Poulson is magnetic in his downward spiral. “Hellaware” also co-stars Brooklyn indie darlings Sophia Takal and Kate Lyn Sheil

Check out the trailer below. “Hellaware” opens in theaters and on VOD on September 26th.
