Apple released the first trailer for the upcoming documentary executive produced by none other than Zach Galigianakis entitled Craigslist Joe. The film follows an ordinary guy named Joe on a journey around the country where he will live off Craigslist. Basically, he will have no money, no food, nowhere to sleep, and no set plans and rely on the people he can meet on Craigslist to survive. Sounds crazy and dangerous at the same time. I didn’t know what to expect exactly when I had heard the concept for this indie doc but after watching the trailer, I really want to see this film. It seems as if Joe meets a ton of people around the country that help him out just out of the kindness of their own hearts proving that their are good people still in this world. Check out the trailer below.
In a time when America’s economy was crumbling and sense of community was in question, one guy left everything behind to see if he could survive solely on the support and goodwill of the 21st century’s new town square: Craigslist.
Craigslist Joe hits limited theaters and VOD August 3, 2012.
