‘John Orpheus is Dead’ is about celebrity, death, and getting attention on the internet.
When a young activist is killed by police, her best friend Valerie sets out to make sure her death is not forgotten.
The film tells the story of the media-fueled collision between Valerie’s grass roots ideals and John Orpheus, a glossy pop-star who represents everything she despises. As the internet gossip spins out of control John’s management and Valerie try to spin the media machine to their own causes with tragic results.
