Storyline

Featuring forty randomly paired people, Max Landis--son of The Blues Brothers (1980) director, John Landis, and writer of Chronicle (2012)--puts complete strangers in an awkward situation--some of them are models and actors, including Haley Joel Osment of The Sixth Sense (1999). The goal is simple, yet not easy: they have to slap each other in the face on their first meeting, participating in an interesting social experiment. Can a bit of hostility-free violence lead to intimacy? With this in mind, would you smile after a rapid and sharp slap in the face? Written by Nick Riganas
