Director Statement

The Marshmallow Mystery Tour was written, shot and directed by two brothers who went undercover at candy landmarks across America. It breaks down the boundary between feature film and documentary to offer the first ever docu-fairytale. Blessed by Willy Wonka himself, Gene Wilder, who caught a glimpse of the project as it began, this is a new kind of comedy for a new era.
