Matthew Johnson directed and co-wrote with Evan Morgan a film that takes a unique look at the very real impact of bullying in today’s schools–with a twist. Matt (Johnson) and Owen (Williams) decide to make a movie on the impact of bullying in their high school. As a result, the bullying gets worse. Eventually, one of them decide that when it comes to bullying, enough is enough. The Dirties just may be one of the most “eye-opening” films to compete at Slamdance.
Synopsis: Matt and Owen are best friends who live in a world of endless movie references and hijinks. It would be perfect, if not for the cruel bullies at their high school who make their lives hell. While working on a movie for class, the lines between fiction and reality blur together in this horrifying look at high school bullying.
