// coming contraptions

The Syndicate of Human Image Traffickers makes documentary films that focus on aporias of the creative life, such as those emerging from the intersection of art and commerce, democracy and demagoguery, freedom and decadence, sexiness and sexism, existentialism and inspiration, bohemianism and bourgeois propriety, etc. Sometimes our films are available on this website for free and without commercial interruption, but sometimes we also take them 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.

To date, Syndicate soundtracks have been commissioned to members of: Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, The Hold Steady, The World/Inferno Friendship Society, The Mars Volta, Thompson Automatic, Sonny Vincent, The Fungus Fire Tabernacle Choir, The Cult Heroes, and The Nixon-Mao Handshake. Our coming contraptions reel was scored by J.G. Thirlwell aka Foetus. The Syndicate collaborates with still photographers like Tina Zimmer, Margee Challa, Janelle Rominski, Arin Sangurai, and Ian Couch.
