‘The Age of Imitation’ explores desire, delusion and the naivety of millennial artistic ego


One of the full-length features juried into this year’s Fort Myers Film Festival is the Australian film The Age of Imitation.

The Age of Imitation follows an affair between a young writing student, Elizabeth, and Stefan, a moody musician. In Elizabeth’s search for romantic inspiration she becomes entangled in Stefan’s relationship with the charismatic hippie healer, Casey, and their psychedelic drug-fueled melodrama. The film explores desire, delusion, and the naivety of millennial artistic ego.

The Age of Imitation was written and directed by Mark Day, who co-produced the film with David C. Mahler. Day’s previous credits include the 2014 short indie film The Suburbs Go on Forever.

The film stars Australian actor, model and dancer Tanya Alers (2nd photo) as Elizabeth, Stefan Miranda as Stefan, Hannah Daniel (3rd photo) as Casey and Mark Diaco as Porter Hayworth.

The film screens at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 22 in the Sidney & Berne Davis Art Center. Its running time is 92 minutes.
