Roger Nygard has made several award-winning, independent, feature films. The documentaries, TREKKIES and the sequel TREKKIES 2, are anthropological studies of a subculture of science-fiction fandom. SIX DAYS IN ROSWELL is a cultural portrait of Americana, a small town gone alien crazy. His documentary, THE NATURE OF EXISTENCE, asks the ultimate question, “What’s the point of everything?” According to Nygard, “When I obsesses on a topic, I don’t quit until I have a movie about it.” His current documentary project focuses on an even more inexplicable topic: Marriage.
Nygard’s narrative films include HIGH STRUNG, a comedy starring Steve Oedekerk, an action picture called, BACK TO BACK: AMERICAN YAKUZA 2, and the car-salesman cult-film SUCKERS. He has also edited feature films such as Mike Binder’s comedy-dramas, MAN ABOUT TOWN and BLACK OR WHITE.
