    Life and Freaky Times of Uncle Luke by Jillian Mayer and Lucas Leyva Buy Pieces of the Set: http://borschtcorp.bigcartel.com/product/life-and-freaky-times-of-uncle-luke-deluxe-box-set Soundtrack: https://soundcloud.com/borschtcorp/sets/life-and-freaky-times-of-uncle-luke Read more about the film here: http://borschtcorp.tumblr.com/post/51605535546/life-and-freaky-times-of-uncle-luke-2011-dir http://mayerleyva.com http://borschtcorp.com This film is part of the permanent collection at the Miami Art Museum. After premiering at Sundance in 2012, it went on to play several dozen other international festivals, including SXSW, BAMcinemafest, Los Angeles, Milan, AFI, and Maryland. Now it is yours to share! “Uncle Luke is an incredibly original film, both in terms of its tone and the technique of its storytelling… Uncle Luke really taps into the popular culture of a specific generation, and it has a very healthy disrespect for convention and authority.” - Sundance Programmer “Life and Freaky Times of Uncle Luke is undeniably entertaining, whether you get the cultural references or not. It is a smart and intricately self-reflexive example of what cultural theorist Jim Collins has called ‘the perpetual circulation and recirculation of signs that form the fabric of postmodern cultural life.’ Mayer and her collaborator are quintessential bricoleurs. In Uncle Luke, street-credible slang and classic booty beats reconstruct a landmark of film history. High and low, art and entertainment, fiction and reality become multiple facets of an intellectually-integrated work that specifically depends on cultural quotation. The parallels are both narrative and structural. Whereas La Jetee is constructed from stills, referencing the psychological relationship between photography and memory, Uncle Luke draws from the nostalgia power of Mayer’s two dimensional boards.” - Art Papers review Life and Freaky Times of Uncle Luke (Inspired by 'La Jetee' by Chris Marker) Borscht Corp. and Rakontur Present a film by Mayer\Leyva Director/ Designer/ Producer: Jillian Mayer Screenplay/ Co-Director/ Editor/ Producer: Lucas Leyva Executive Producer: Evan Rosenfeld Co-Executive Producer: Andrew Hevia, Dennis Scholl Co-Producer: Nick Orsini Associate Producer: Fro Rojas, Evrim Oralkan Starring Luther Campbell as Uncle Luke Scientists: Carlos Rigau, Eric Cade Shoenborn Eliza: Elizabeth Sky Mutants: Sterling Rook, Rob Maya, Shira Abergel, Nick Ducassi, Sasha Buttboy, Orlando Estrada, Maurice Pierre Girls in White: Mabel Gonzalez, Lana Melisso, Shira Abergel, Taryn Lombardi Clown: Ana Trevino Judge: Richard Freedberg Reporter: Jennifer Lopez Bus Driver: Jillian Mayer Bus Rider: Shira Abergel Album Buttocks: Candy Molina, Ella Pia, Meho Latrina, Nancy Trevino 2 Live Crew: Julian Yuri Rodriguez, Lucas Leyva, Sylvester the Kat Man, Ella Pia Stank Lady: Judy Freedberg Stank People: Nick Ducassi, Julian Yuri Rodriguez, Jessica Gross Stunt Doubles: Maurice Pierre, Sterling Rook Director of Photography: Jonthan David Kane Assistant Camera: Juan Camilo Barriga Gaffer: Roberto Gonzalez Boom Operator: Tim Roach Post Audio: Cory Czjakowski, Diego Meza Valdes Colorist: Oscar Martinez Art Coordinator: Orlando Estrada Project Coordinator: Ana Trevino Art Department: Kayla de la Cerda, Taryn Devereux, Jack Elder, Julian Yuri Rodriguez, Sterling Rook, Madee Kuhn, Gabriel Rhenals, Oly Vargas, Inez Suen, Layla Bessiso, Rob Maya, Destin Jones, Zach Bagnell Carpenter: Bill Landis Make-Up: Giselle Mendez Special Thanks: Billy Corben, Alfred Spellman, Borscht Film Festival, New Art Miami, Nadia Bowen, Shivers, Canvas Lifestyle, HBKZ/Sesion31, Karelle Levy, Booty Bass, The Internet, David Castillo Gallery, Luther Campbell for Miami-Dade Mayor Campaign Made possible by a Knight Arts Challenge Grant from the John S. and James L.

                A modern Miami adaptation of the 1962 French short film 'La Jetee', the film recounts Luke's (Uncle Luke, legendary rapper from the hip-hop group 2 Live Crew) rise to fame as he changes the face of hip-hop and fights for first amendment rights- and later as he ushers Miami into a golden era of peace and prosperity as Mayor. Everything changes when the Turkey Point Nuclear Reactor has a meltdown and turns Miami into a post-apocayptic wasteland. Jillian Mayer and Lucas Leyva, (collectively Mayer\Leyva) teamed up with Rakontur and Uncle Luke as part of our filmmaker + musician collaboration series. *Sundance Film Festival *SXSW Film Festival *Mecal International Film Festival *Atlanta Film Festival *Ann Arbor Film Festival *Milan International Film Festival *New Orleans Film Festival *Raindance Film Festival *Sarasota Film Festival *Dallas Film Festival *Nashville Film Festival *Maryland Film Festival *Athens Film and Video Festival *deadCenter Film Festival *CFC (Canadian Film Centre) Film Festival *CinemaTeket Oslo *Rockland Shorts at the Farnsworth Museum *Boston Underground Film Festival (Winner, Best Short Film) *Rooftop Film Screening Series *BAMcinemafest (Brooklyn Academy of Music) *LA Shorts Film Festival *USA Film Festival (Finalist, Best Short Film) *Incubate Netherlands Film Festival *Provincetown Film Festival *Columbia Gorge Film Festival *Chicago Underground Film Festival (Honorable Mention, Best Short Film) *HBO New York Latino Film Festival *Minneapolis Underground Film Festival *Atlantic Film Festival *AFI Film Festival *Featured in Wholphin #16 *10 Must-See Shorts at Sundance (Indiewire) *5/5 Stars (Film Threat Review) *Top 5 Music Films at Sundance (MTV) *One of the most fun and fresh films at Sundance (Movieline) *LA Times *NY Times *Rolling Stone “Uncle Luke is an incredibly original film, both in terms of its tone and the technique of its storytelling… Uncle Luke really taps into the popular culture of a specific generation, and it has a very healthy disrespect for convention and authority.” - Sundance Programmer “Life and Freaky Times of Uncle Luke is undeniably entertaining, whether you get the cultural references or not.
