A journalist unwittingly stumbles into a thrillingly tense game of cat and mouse with a mysterious man causing havoc in his neighbourhood.

A comedic horror of a documentary... a simple piece of investigative journalism descending into madness, and a spotlight on the human spirit’s capacity for darkness.

Kevin Fox, Jr., Paste Magazine

Stick around after the screening for a virtual Q&A with director David Farrier and award-winning journalist Pat Abboud.

When journalist and filmmaker David Farrier (Tickled, Dark Tourist) discovered that someone had been scamming Auckland drivers by wheel clamping cars at a local antique store, he couldn’t imagine who was about to enter his life.

That clamper was Michael Organ and little did Farrier know that delving deeper into who Organ really is would be a thrilling and tension filled three year-long investigation, unearthing a trail of multiple court cases, inflated claims of royal bloodlines, ruined lives and at least one stolen boat.

Curator's note

Fans of Farrier’s previous work will know that the director has a knack for following shady individuals down sinister rabbit holes, and the events of Mister Organ are no exception. The less revealed in advance about the protagonist of this documentary, the better. The many twists and turns will keep you on the edge of your seat until the long after the credits begin rolling.
