synopsis
A young hipster wannabe-superstar dj, Phil, takes on a day job at a telemarketing company, working with crazy people, ex-prisoners, drug addicts and murderers. The time on his life begins to tick as he battles addiction, fights the law and tries to maintain the only sane thing left in his life, his girlfriend, Christine.

director
A US-Canadian dual citizen born in Scarborough (just outside of Toronto), Mars Roberge graduated in 1995 with a B.F.A. in Film Production from York University. During the 90s, he made several music videos and award-winning short films/documentaries which included “Femme Plastique” (winner of Best Humorous Film at the International Canadian Annual Short Film and Video Festival 1992), “Canada on the Fringe” (finalist at 1993 New York Film Expo) and “Life on Mars” (On The Fly Film Festival 1998). In 2000, he moved to NYC and made his first feature, a documentary on Sex & the City stylist Patricia Field called "The Little House That Could", completing it in 2013. Still running strong in festivals, it has played 14 festivals, 24 screenings around the world, it won Best Documentary at 2016 Philadelphia Independent Film Festival, won the Audience Choice Award for best film at 2015 NewFilmmakers Los Angeles, was nominated for Best Feature Documentary at 2015 NewFilmmakers Los Angeles and was nominated for Best LGBT Feature Documentary at 2014 Queens World Film Festival. It has also been licensed to OUTtv, Queer Culture TV and Mainstream Media Unplugged. Mars currently lives in Los Angeles with his fiancé and works full-time for Nomad Editing Company. He has just finished his second feature film, a dark comedy from a script he wrote called “Scumbag” had its world premiere at the 46th International Film Festival Rotterdam. The movie, shot in 4k raw, has 223 actors including cult legends such as Penny Arcade, Michael Alig, Ron Jeremy and Nick Zedd, to name a few.
