Directed by Matt Gissing and Malcolm Ingram
An essential film for fans of the "View Askewniverse", Drawing Flies stars Jason Lee ("My Name is Earl"), Jason Mewes (Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back), Renee Humphrey (French Kiss), Martin Brooks (Tail Lights Fade) and Carmen Lee (Chasing Amy) and includes appearances by Scott Mosier (Clerks), Ethan Suplee ("My Name is Earl"), Joey Lauren Adams (Chasing Amy) and a cameo by the man himself as Silent Bob (making it an unofficial Mallrats reunion).
Drawing Flies tells the story of Donner (Lee), the unofficial leader of a troupe of slackers who've just been kicked off of welfare. Donner convinces his friends that what they need to turn their lives around is a camping trip; but as they go deeper and deeper into the woods, Donner's behavior grows increasingly erratic and unbeknownst to the group, finally reveals that "visions" have put him on a quest to find Bigfoot.
Drawing Flies, the quirky, indie comedy that Executive Producer Kevin Smith (Red State, Clerks) refers to as "the bridge flick between Mallrats and Chasing Amy", is the debut film from directors Malcolm Ingram and Matt Gissing. Often called "the lost View Askew films" by fans, this film has finally been found and restored in a beautiful, new, widescreen high definition transfer (for the first time) and restoration from original film elements.
