CounterIntelligence is a contemporary reimagining of a Russian folktale told in a tongue and cheek telenovela style that asks the question: who are we really? The recognition or lack thereof of our human behavior and the situations resulting from our unconscious actions is the premise of this tale.
Part 1 includes An Evil Stream, the first episode where the adventure begins for our protagonist siblings as they innocently wander into the enchanted woods. Episode Two will follow as well as a trailer for Part 2.
Filming for CounterIntelligence took place in and around the Russian-Jewish enclave of West Hollywood. It was written and directed by Heidi Duckler and filmed and edited by Nicolas Savignano. It stars dance artists Andrea Burr, Rebekah Denegal, Friidom (Darrel Dunn), Raymond Ejiofor, William Ylvisaker, and Ching Ching Wong.
