Funny Ha Ha Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

American independent filmmaker [[Performer~P370174~Andrew Bujalski~andrewbujalski]] makes his feature debut as a writer/director with the microbudgeted Funny Ha Ha. Shot on-location in Boston on 16 mm film, the movie is predominately cast with unprofessional actors engaging in realistic discourse. Main character Marnie is played by first-time actress [[Performer~P320809~Kate Dollenmayer~katedollenmayer]], a student at CalArts who previously worked on [[Performer~P99850~Richard Linklater~richardlinklater]]'s [[Feature~V237170~Waking Life~wakinglife]]. Marnie goes about her everyday life with a conflicted love for her friend Alex ([[Performer~P370543~Christian Rudder~christianrudder]]) and a dispassionate attitude toward her job as a temp office worker. While at work she meets the nervous Mitchell, played by the director. Funny Ha Ha was shown at the 2003 IFP Los Angeles Film Festival. ~ Andrea LeVasseur, Rovi
