Nick Prueher (Late Show with David Letterman) and Joe Pickett (The Onion) began stockpiling videotapes in 1991 after happening upon a training video entitled “Inside and Outside Custodial Duties” at a McDonald’s in their home state of Wisconsin. Fast forward to 2010 and the duo’s fifth Found Footage Festival, which showcases wonderfully strange and stupid videos from thrift stores, dumpsters, and garage sales across the country. Keep an eye out for the montage of locally found clips from Denver artist Andrew Novick.

Stripped, Starz FilmCenter
Thursday, March 11 | Details | Read more | Watch trailer

Stripped follows photographer Greg Friedler as he shoots the fourth and final book in his critically acclaimed series, Naked. Director David Palmer joins Friedler—who earned his bachelor’s degree from the University of Colorado at Boulder—for this disrobed documentary that leaves nothing to the imagination as the two scour the Vegas strip. The duo convinces a diverse group of 173 people to pose nude, exposing insecurity, beauty, humanity, and more along the way.
