TEENAGE PAPARAZZO Screening
TEENAGE PAPARAZZO documents the true story of a relationship between a 13 year-old paparazzo (Austin Visschedyk) and Adrian Grenier, the star of the HBO series Entourage. Inspired by a chance encounter with Visschedyk during a night out, Grenier (who previously directed the documentary Shot in the Dark) decides, for a change, to turn the cameras on the paparazzi in an effort to document this unique teenager’s world. But the actor/director soon finds the project turning into a personal challenge as Grenier is forced to take responsibility for his influence on his subject’s life. As Visschedyk succumbs to the lure of fame, Grenier sets out to understand what makes that lure so powerful—hoping that he and Austin can find something more authentic than the relationship of mutual exploitation that now exists between them!
TEENAGE PAPARAZZO contextualizes this vivid story of their relationship using interviews with various people who understand both the perks and consequences of media exposure—from psychologists and historians to celebrities (including Matt Damon, Eva Longoria, Paris Hilton, Alec Baldwin and Whoopi Goldberg), as well as critics, fans, bloggers, publishers and tabloid writers, Grenier ultimately offers an intimate look at the paparazzi and the celebrity culture they serve—and the way it influences this particular teenager and his family.
What better way to celebrate the release of a landmark cultural film about 'celebrity' and 'paparazzi' in our society, then to screen the film 'Teenage Paparazzo' and have a Q&A with the film's director Adrian Grenier, and Co-Producer Evan Ferrante. Come be a part of this unique and exclusive opportunity.
As part of the 'Teenage Paparazzo Experience' which is a 3-Day Schedule of Events which takes place during the Calgary Stampede from July 15th-17th, SMED Energy, Area32a, Madflower Creative Group & Glenbow Museum are excited to present an exclusive screening of the Teenage Paparazzo film as well as a Q&A with it's Director and Co-Producer.
