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.

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 2Sides Films. It stars dance artists Andrea Burr, Rebekah Denegal, Friidom (Darrel Dunn), Raymond Ejiofor, William Ylvisaker, and Ching Ching Wong.

This project is supported in part by an arts grant from the City of West Hollywood.
