SET DURING THE SUMMER OF 2004 AND BASED ON GODARD'S "BAND A PART", "OUTSIDERS" INCLUDES COMMENTARY ON NORTH VS. SOUTH AUSTIN, KERRY VS. BUSH, AND FILM VS. REALITY.
"One viewer called OUTSIDERS 'a sketchbook.' I took that as a compliment because I believe that's what the best films by Godard are like. My favorite in this respect is PIERROT LE FOU, which pretty much marks the end of his early period. OUTSIDERS is an attempt to mesh the open-ended, more traditional narrative structure of early Godard and the notebook-like, documentry feel of late Godard with themes and sensibilities relevant to my time and place, but readily understandable by a worldwide audience. Perhaps Godard can be thought of as a postmodernist, and OUTSIDERS could be watched in that light." --from an interview with director Jerry Barrett
