In the middle of a crowded bar, Charles is feeling increasingly desperate. The cause of his misery is his old friend... you know... what’s-his-name... Directed by Chris Landreth, the filmmaker behind the Oscar®-winning short Ryan, Subconscious Password uses a common social gaffe—forgetting somebody’s name—as the starting point for a mind-bending romp through the unconscious. Inspired by the classic American TV game show Password, the film features a wealth of animated celebrity guests who try (and try, and try) to prompt Charles to remember the name. Finally, he realizes he will simply have to surrender himself to his predicament.
