Boat Rocker & Anonymous Content Team for Political Thriller Doc


Boat Rocker and Anonymous Content have partnered to co-finance and co-sell a political thriller feature documentary co-directed by Emmy Award winners Jesse Moss (Boys State) and Tony Gerber (The Notorious Mr. Bout, Full Battle Rattle).

Produced by Boat Rocker’s Matador Content, details of the untitled project are being kept closely under wraps. It was shot over the course of two days last month in Washington, D.C.

Warren Littlefield (The Handmaid’s Tale, Fargo, The Old Man) will executive produce the project for The Littlefield Co., along with Jon Steinberg (Black Sails, The Old Man, Percy Jackson and the Olympians) and Dan Shotz (Black Sails, The Old Man, Percy Jackson and the Olympians) for Quaker Moving Pictures.

Ivan Schneeberg, David Fortier and Jay Peterson (Dear…) will executive produce for Boat Rocker, alongside Todd Lubin (Billie Eilish: The World’s a Little Blurry) for Matador Content and Dawn Olmstead and David Levine for Anonymous Content. Matador’s Jack Turner (Pretty Baby: Brooke Shields) and Mark DiCristofaro (Billie Eilish: The World’s a Little Blurry) will produce the project alongside Nick Shumaker and Jessica Grimshaw for Anonymous Content and Moss through his Mile End Films West banner.

“We’re so pleased to partner with Anonymous Content to bring this project to life,” said Schneeberg and Fortier, co-chairmen of Boat Rocker Studios. “Working alongside Jesse Moss and Tony Gerber, as well as Warren Littlefield, Jon Steinberg and Dan Shotz fits perfectly within Boat Rocker’s ambition to produce premium documentaries with the world’s best storytellers.”

“Jesse and Tony are world-class documentarians with a brilliant and unique perspective on the world around us. They have such a unique ability to immerse themselves in these ideas and concepts of our society as a whole to tell timely and significant stories with incredibly thought-provoking points of view,” said Anonymous Content’s Shumaker and Grimshaw. “We are thrilled to partner with both of them as well as the team at Boat Rocker on this project and explore a moment in history in such an innovative way.”

“This ambitious project required a world-class team and a true leap of faith,” said Moss. “It’s an utterly unique story that is equal parts political thriller, dystopian science fiction and intimate cinema vérité. It expands the form of non-fiction filmmaking in exciting ways and is of enormous significance to our political future. We can’t wait to share it.”
