‘i am 23 and want to die.’
‘i can travel anywhere.’
After posting this request on an internet message board, a depressed young woman finds her mercy killer in the form of an engimatic teenage boy from Elko, Nevada. Chronicling the bizarre rituals that lead to the ultimate homicide, “Elko” presents a voyeuristic glimpse into the emotional disconnect and casual cruelty of the internet generation.
Alexander Yan is a filmmaker who believes it is better to be interesting than well liked. He holds a BFA from Emerson College and is the 2011 recipient of the Boston Underground’s “Most Effectively Effectively Offensive” award.
