Told almost entirely through voicemail messages, One Year Lease documents the hilarious travails of Brian, Thomas, and Casper as they endure a year-long nightmare with Rita, the meddlesome cat-loving landlady.
Director’s Statement: Brian Bolster
As a documentary filmmaker, I can confidently state that this project was never one I could have imagined tackling, let alone living through! Voicemail messages accumulated — saved either to replay for family and friends at a dinner party or out of sheer laziness — but it wasn’t until the end of a year approached that Thomas and I stepped back and took inventory of the incredible stock of unsolicited “content” we had been provided. Only then did I begin to conceptualize the story, and ultimately realized that there was no better narrator of it than the straight-out-of- central-casting star herself, Rita.
