Sick of his fellow twenty-somethings' smug arrogance, reality TV cameraman John Costa decides it's time to take revenge on the hipsters. Armed with his weapon of choice, a trusty video camera, John points his lens into the narcotic-fueled nightlife of mid-recession New York City. Using the hipster scene to film a mockumentary, he tries to turn his acquaintances' words against them, exposing them as the caricatures of culture he sees them to be. What he gets instead is an education in authenticity. Honest, optimistic and unrefined, The Hipsters scrutinizes the challenges of new-millennium youth culture: what was inherited and what it brought upon itself.
