Mac DeMarco will make his major acting debut in a new feature film called Dark Prism.
Dark Prism, directed by filmmaker Dylan Greenberg, has been described as a horror-thriller “about three unique and strange women, each battling their own demons, in both a literal and metaphorical sense”.
A YouTube description adds: “Although they exist in different times and perhaps different worlds, their lives will soon collide due to the mysterious appearance of a massive prism. Slowly, the world as one knows it disassembles, and the nonsensical becomes the sensical… in Dark Prism.”
DeMarco plays the character of The Master, who narrates a trailer for the film. Watch below.
DeMarco recently dismissed Fat White Family‘s recent criticism of him, revealing that the band asked him to play live with them recently.
The London band recently threatened “to join Isis” if the Canadian singer-songwriter continued to make music. Writing on their Facebook page, the band joked that their contempt for the musician had pushed them to the extreme.
“Unless Mac DeMarco immediately withdraws from music and the public eye, me and Saul will be on the first plane to Syria to join Isis. Peace be with you,” they wrote.
DeMarco later told The Guardian that he has never heard the band’s music and thinks their comments are due to the fact that he rejected their offer of a live collaboration.
He said, “People ask, ‘These are your friends, right? This is a funny thing?’” he says. “I’m like, ‘I’ve never met these guys. I don’t know what they sound like.’ They asked me to play guitar with them on David Letterman a couple of months ago and I said no. But I guess somewhere in between that time and now they decided that they didn’t like me actually and yeah, if they have a problem, then that’s fine. Not everyone’s going to like my music. That’s fine.”
“I don’t know anything about them. I don’t know anything about their music, but it just kind of comes off as misinformed and a little bit disrespectful.”
