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, freedom and decadence, bohemianism and bourgeois propriety, existentialism and motivation, etc. Our first four films are available for free and without commercial interruption on this website for your viewing pleasure. Each of these 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, 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, Andrew K. Thompson, Margee Challa, and Ian Couch.
