Synopsis: After landing a gig at a marshmallow theme park, a cameraman uncovers the shocking truth about America’s candyland and his own sugarcoated childhood.
The Marshmallow Mystery Tour was written, shot and directed by two brothers who went undercover at candy landmarks across America. It breaks down the boundary between feature film and documentary to offer the first ever docu-fairytale. Blessed by Willy Wonka himself, Gene Wilder, who caught a glimpse of the project as it began, this is a new kind of comedy for a new era.
The Beals Brothers grew up in New York snorting Fun Dip and building titanic Oreo sandwiches and have never stopped. Matthew is an award-winning director of photography whose work has appeared in Steven Spielberg’s The Rising and in his own documentary The Power of the Peep. Jeff is a teacher and activist who was featured on This American Life as a congressional candidate and decorated for his service as a US diplomat in Iraq. Today they write and shoot film together while plying their trades across the continent.
