Real Enemies is a GRAMMY- and JUNO-nominated multimedia work that investigates America’s fascination with conspiracy theories. Filmmaker Peter Nigrini, writer/director Isaac Butler, designer Maruti Evans, and composer Darcy James Argue with his Secret Society, collaborated for over two years to create this piece. Projection surfaces teeming with found footage, live video, and historical texts explore dozens of narratives - the Red Scare, the Illuminati, Edward Snowden, alien sightings - all meticulously examined and interrogated. Real Enemies premiered at the BAM Next Wave Festival (Brooklyn, NYC) in November 2015, and has since given performances at Holland Festival (Amsterdam, NL) and National Sawdust (Brooklyn, NYC).
