“One of the most awkward, quirky and original horror films … and definitely one of the best films of the year. An exquisite example of how quickly the thin line between reality and art can blur.” – Film Inquiry
Playing a semi-fictionalized version of herself, director Gillian Wallace Horvat navigates the endless process required to get a film off the ground in her fascinating feature debut. Feeling like her friends and her partner are losing faith in her abilities, she decides to resurrect her abandoned documentary based on a pseudo-compliment she once received that she would make a good murderer. But while she documents what makes “the perfect murder” a hitherto unseen dark side of Gillian emerges and grows. Was she always crazy or did this project make her that way?
I BLAME SOCIETY is a titillating meta-story about the camera as an excuse for abuse, artistic transgression and blurry boundaries. Losing more than her friends and loved ones, her obsession with authenticity leads her to lose sight of where creativity ends and madness begins. Is her motive art? Or a thirst for blood?
