Paul Verhoeven's Tricked

Part behind-the-scenes documentary, part narrative feature, PAUL VERHOEVEN'S TRICKED is the result of an ambitious experiment in filmmaking. Director Paul Verhoeven (Basic Instinct, Total Recall) shoots four minutes of the film Tricked, and crowd-sources the remainder of the script. With a brisk pace and exhilarating zigzag of a plot, Tricked is a cliffhanger character drama that takes Verhoeven himself by surprise.

The Pearl Button

The ocean contains the history of all humanity. The sea holds the voices of the Earth and those that come from outer space. Water receives impetus from the stars and transmits it to living creatures. Water, the longest border in Chile, also holds the secret of a mysterious button that was discovered in its seabed. Chile, with its 2,670 miles of coastline, the largest archipelago in the world, presents a supernatural landscape. In it are volcanoes, mountains and glaciers. In it are the voices of the Patagonian indigenous people, of the first English sailors and also those of its political prisoners. Some say that water has memory. This film shows that it also has a voice.
