About Michael Manese and Angry Doug Films
Up and coming filmmaker Michael Manese is excited to present his latest short film as writer and director “Maxine.” “Maxine” is a follow up to his short “When bart6874 met lulu5547,” which has screened in 13 film festivals and venues throughout Europe and North America including The Golden Door Film Festival and the New York City International Film Festival.
“Maxine” is an experimental, adult themed, short about a couple breaking up. It is also a statement on how people process moments and past memories - For mature audiences only.
“I like mainstream, Hollywood movies with an edge. My goal is to make movies that are thought provoking, daring, and experimental that can also reach a wide audience. Movies such as ‘Carnal Knowledge,’ ‘Pulp Fiction,’ ‘Annie Hall,’ and ‘Last Tango in Paris’ are, to me, just a few examples of this formula.”

A mature, adult themed experimental piece about a man reminiscing about an old flame as he prepares to leave his beloved NYC to live a new life somewhere else. Experimental in every way, with scenes within scenes, voice over dialogues, and a nonlinear narrative, the movie is a statement on how we process memories and past moments.
