Marty, a temp employee at a bank in Grand Rapids spends most of his working hours plotting petty scams. He responds poorly when assigned some actual work by his boss but soon takes interest in the chore, when he realizes this new assignment could earn him some money on the side. Naive about how this process works, he’s frightened to learn that his boss will soon see the evidence of his crime. Paranoid, he flees his apartment and hides in his co-worker’s basement.  Here he abuses his reluctant host’s hospitality for a while, before fleeing to Detroit with nothing but forged checks, a grotesquely modified Nintendo Power Glove and a vile temper. Premiering at SXSW 2014Buzzard is a guerilla-style, bitingly funny look at one man’s personal rebellion against the established American order. Fittingly described by SXSW as, “Albert Camus meets Freddy Krueger.”
