Director Matthew Bauer said: “When I was finishing my thesis at NYU Film School, somewhere from the aether appeared the enticing question, “What would it be like to have the name James Bond?” That simple thought has taken me on a figurative and literal journey across the world over a number of years, and has uncovered a myriad fascinating, wholly divergent stories.

In the sixtieth anniversary year of the James Bond film series and as questions rage about the gender, race, and identity of the next movie 007, suddenly THE OTHER FELLOW holds great, fascinating resonance.”
