Trailer: The Search for the Zozo

The Zozo is coming...

Our eclectic mockumentary "The Search for the Zozo" is only days away from debuting.  Until then you'll have to do with the charm of this mysterious promo which is all sorts of wonderful and features lots of NYC notables.  Have you seen the Zozo? Check back in a few days to see if we found it.

    Holy crap I can't believe this is finally being covered. It was only mentioned briefly on Leonard Nemoy's "In Search Of" back in the '70s, otherwise it's barely been covered.

    I'm so glad to see Streetfilms pointing the lens this modern "extinction" and possible recovery. Can't wait for the feature version.

    The SUV lobbyist was brilliantly played. Yep, ZOZOs should to to WY,,,,uh, I don't think with those fast roads they'd last long. Of course, I don't think they'd go there - no children to play with on the streets...
