Described as "sweet, disturbing, awkward, and romantic all at once" by Elle Magazine, this humorous, rollercoaster ride of a documentary tells the story of an artist-turned-cable-access arts reporter (Paul H-O) and his experience inside New York's visual arts scene. Filmed over the course of 15 years, Guest of Cindy Sherman intertwines candid interviews with famous New Yorkers of the 1980s (such as Roberta Smith, Ingrid Sischy, John Waters, Robert Longo, Carol Kane, David Furnish, Danny DeVito and Molly Ringwald) with the unfolding love story of Sherman and H-O. The romance is short-lived as H-O begins to struggle with his life as Sherman's faceless 'plus one' at many of New York's premiere art events. He attempts to cope with this fall into anonymity, all the while exploring the absurd, money-driven, over-the-top aspects of the Manhattan art scene. The result is a documentary that gives uncensored insight into an exclusive world, while exploring the pressures that fame imparts on romance. Directors Paul H-O and Tom Donahue will be in attendance.
