The trailer for The Immaculate Conception of Little Dizzle.
The Immaculate Conception of Little Dizzle is a character-driven comedy about unintended consequences. Desperate for work after being fired from his job as a data manager, Dory, a socially flawed young Christian whose piety far outstrips his faith, takes a job as a night janitor. Dory quickly embraces his new job — a profession filled with unstable people hanging on the edge of society: borderline criminals, drug addicts, dropouts, loners, and all manner of emotionally and mentally challenged misfits who, like our man Dory, find they have no other trade to pursue.
Working in a sterile office building housing a market research firm, the janitors are being experimented on surreptitiously. Eating test foods out of the trash, they wind up becoming addicted to a highly experimental cookie that gets warm in your mouth when eaten (to simulate “oven-freshness”). The consequences of this dependency include spectacular visions, wild mood swings that disrupt their friendships, and a quasi-pregnancy that only happens to the male janitors. The men must pull together to become midwives for one another as each gives birth to a small, beautiful, immaculately conceived blue fish that only lives mere moments.
Mixing live-action and innovative animation, this experimental-form narrative feature will be punctuated with dazzling, artful visual flights as it follows workers who are aliens in their own culture. Plummeting from the “white-collar” past the “blue collar” to the “brown-collar” world gives Dory a new perspective on his culture, his friends, his beliefs, and himself. Becoming one of the invisible people at the waste end of a wasteful society is only the beginning of Dory’s karmic penance and redemption.
The Immaculate Conception of Little Dizzle is a cinematic adventure with a fantastical plot that arcs through the characters’ lives (and bodies). It’s a simple story that carefully unfolds itself into newer and newer dimensions, but the characters and their janitorial point of view remain its heart and soul.
