Interpol Stars Turns Filmmaker

(PR) My Friends Told Me About You is the filmmaking debut of Carlos Dengler, bassist of infamous NYC based rock band Interpol. The 26 minute short film targets the idea of celebrity as affliction and premieres in New York City at Anonymous Gallery on April 17th. Filmed around Chicago in 2007, MFTMAY charts the journey of a man at the beginning of a downward spiral. Paranoia, confusion, and anger start to color all that he knows to be true and as reality blurs with his subconscious fears, an alternate world propelled by violence and mistrust begins to take over. As sonic as it is visual, Dengler also composed the original score for MFTMAY in collaboration with acclaimed English clarinetist Ian Mitchell.

Carlos Dengler produced, stars in, and composed the original score for MY FRIENDS TOLD ME ABOUT YOU. MFTMAY is co-produced by Todd Eckert, producer of award-winning Joy Division biopic, Control, which won the 2007 Cannes award for Best European Feature.

Dengler writes: "Making MY FRIENDS TOLD ME ABOUT YOU was a chance to explore the narrative potential of sound and spectacle. The idea was to achieve the expression of film as a composition, a tone poem of carefully selected cinematic effects and gestures."

MY FRIENDS TOLD ME ABOUT YOU is proud to announce our debut collaboration with Anonymous Gallery in New York City. MFTMAY will premiere publicly as a video installation at Anonymous from April 17th through May 5th. Press are invited to an early screening on Thursday April 16th before the installation opens to the public. A full schedule of events surrounding the premiere will be announced in the upcoming weeks.
