Published Oct 05, 2015Cheeky indie star Mac DeMarco is about to bring his talents to a new medium, as the Canadian-born songwriter is acting in an upcoming film called Dark Prism.
The flick is directed by Dylan Greenberg and it features DeMarco playing the role of "The Master." This is evidently his first acting role in a feature-length film. A synopsis of the plot goes like this:
Dark Prism is about three unique and strange women, each battling their own demons, in both a literal and metaphorical sense. Although they exist in different times and perhaps different worlds, their lives will soon collide due to the mysterious appearance of a massive prism. Slowly, the world as one knows it disassembles, and the nonsensical becomes the sensical.
Watch a trailer for the film below. Its DIY aesthetic and oddball sense of humour is very much in line with DeMarco's usual work.
There's no confirmed release date, but the trailer ends with the words "appearing soon," so stay tuned for the official arrival of DeMarco's film debut.
