Under a code of ABSOLUTE DISCRETION, guests are invited into the House of the Latitude, a place where truth and fiction are indistinguishable.

This film follows participants through the dark mazes, to a place where a powerful spell is cast, and ultimately broken, as we witness the unforeseen consequences of a daring social experiment.

Spencer McCall has spent the last ten years orchestrating socio-reengineering and public hoax-prank performance art pieces. An avid fan of the Yes Men, McCall began by participating in Improv Everywhere inspired events, “plant” based roles in The Go Game, and location-based performances with Atmos-theater.

In 2009, he became a co-creator of the Jejune Institute; a city-wide alternate reality game in San Francisco that lasted three years and “inducted” over 10,000 unknowing participants. McCall took his experience working with Jejune and turned it into an award-winning documentary “The Institute”. McCall is an executive producer on the remake of “The Institute” – “Dispatches From Elsewhere” premiering on AMC March 1st.

Since then, he has aided in Demand Protest, an elaborate hoax that garnered national news coverage and landed him an appearance on Tucker Carlson; in character as alter ego Dominic Tullipso (double-Ls are silent) where he confused and amused Carlson and America. Washington Post described it as one of the most bizarre on-camera interviews ever broadcast.

And a little filmmaker, BIFF Alum success story…
