The Syndicate of Human Image Traffickers makes documentary films that focus on tensions in the creative life between art and commerce, democracy and demagoguery, freedom and debauchery, sexiness and sexism, existentialism and inspiration, bohemianism and mores, psychedelic illumination and cosmic mumbo-jumbo, etc. Our films are not available on any website for free; they are usually off-line so that they can be screened at festivals, galleries, and other arts institutions. Our first four films were simultaneously broadcast on the blog of Coilhouse Magazine.
