'Duck Butter' Trailer

  • Alia Shawkat (Search Party) and Laia Costa (Victoria) star.

  • Directed by Miguel Arteta (Beatriz at Dinner), and co-written by Shawkat and Arteta.

  • Also stars Hong Chau, Mae Whitman, Kumail Nanjiani, Kate Berlant, Mark Duplass, and Jay Duplass.

  • Plot summary from IMDB: Two women, who are dissatisfied with the dishonesty they see in dating and relationships, decide to make a pact to spend 24 hours together hoping to find a new way to create intimacy.

  • They spent five years writing the script, first remotely and then together in LA.

  • Originally wrote the lead opposite Shawkat for a man, and considered a bunch of actors for the part. But once they met Laia, they decided to rewrite the part for a woman.

  • Involves lesbians, but isn't a "lesbian story" - no coming out, no exterior adversity. The story is universal.

  • The name is from the idea that love is messy.

  • They shot the film in 24 hours.
