When a New Yorker walks past a chicken on his morning stroll we are left to wonder which one is the real city slicker.


About the director

Grant Orchard has a truly Idiosyncratic style. Alongside creating spots for COMPAQ, VIRGIN, SKYPE, BUPA, BARCLAYS and ORANGE, Grant has won two D&AD Awards for Interaction design. Grant followed his first film WELCOME TO GLARINGLY with the unique PARK FOOTBALL; which in turn led to the amazing LOVESPORT series for QOOBtv. Equally at home collaborating with artists or developing his solo projects, Grant consistently challenges every attempt to categorize his work and continues to confound expectations at every turn. Grant lives in London, England.

Filmmaker's note

Based loosely on a real life event recounted in Paul Auster's brilliant book 'True Tales of American Life'
