THE MANY SAD FATES OF MR. TOLEDANO

Director: Joshua Seftel

Executive Producer: Morgan Spurlock

Editor: Colin Nusbaum

The Many Sad Fates of Mr. Toledano follows top NYC photographer Phil Toledano, who becomes obsessed with his own fear of aging in the wake of his father’s death. Part dark comedy, part exploration of each of our deepest, most human fears, the films follow Toledano as he embarks on a strange, provocative three year journey to experience all of his futures. Through the help of a DNA test, a special effects makeup artist, and psychics, the one project his wife asked him not to pursue becomes an obsession as Toledano transforms into all the futures that might befall each of us – obesity, stroke, desolation, violent death, suicide – capturing them in a series of vivid photographic portraits. The film focuses on Toledano’s strained relationship with his wife and mother-in-law as they experience life with him during this obsessive three-year journey.
