Capturing any social media star’s worst nightmare, CAM is a mind-bending nosedive into the horrors of a camgirl’s loss of identity when a menacing doppelgänger hijacks her account.
Part exhibitionist and part entrepreneur, rising-in-the-ranks camgirl Alice (Madeline Brewer, THE HANDMAID’S TALE) obsessively performs increasingly shocking productions for unseen, tip-bearing Johns and Janes on a nightly basis. With every nauseating “ding” of a tip, she expands her bank account, reaffirms her online presence and life choices, often serves as a private pseudo-therapist for those willing to shell out a few more bucks, and rises to the top of the charts. Yet something is amiss when she discovers an imposter, who is a sinister dead ringer for the starlet, has hijacked her account. Questioning her own reality, Alice descends into hysteria searching for the culprit while trying to remain in the top 10. Like the greatest psychological-thrillers, director Daniel Goldhaber and writer Isa Mazzei completely immerse the audience into Alice’s mind, always staying one step ahead, and questioning our second life on the internet. Winner of Best First Feature and Best Screenplay at this year’s Fantasia Fest, CAM will leave audiences hesitating the next time they enter a password.
