Manchild Unmasked


Film Poster

A real-life musical tale of disillusionment, true love, 
and bologna glued to public telephones.

Synopsis: "Manchild Unmasked" positions us downwind of performance artist Justin Callaway and his socially downtrodden alter ego, Frederick Manchild, and The Manchild 4, a group of musicians he has enlisted to help realize his dream of creating a subversive Top 40 hit. Wearing a giant prosthetic baby's head and reeking of rotting fish, Manchild belts out indie pop ballads of isolation while littering the city's public phone booths with bologna. This is all part of Callaway's grand scheme to publicly call into question conventional assumptions of normalcy and acceptance. There is only one thing that can stop him. He can't sing.
