Adam Green's Aladdin is an independent film written, directed by, and starring Adam Green that presents a modern take on the Arabian Nights classic tale. The film stars Alia Shawkat, Natasha Lyonne, Jack Dishel, Macaulay Culkin, and Nicole LaLiberte. The film explores themes of technology, government repression, greed, and true love. The film was partially funded through the crowdfunding website Kickstarter, and filmed over the summer of 2014. The film was released on April 15, 2016, through video on demand.
The film revolves around Aladdin's dysfunctional family, who live in an average American city ruled by a corrupt sultan with a decadent socialite daughter.
The film raised money through Kickstarter, with Green admitting that the bulk of the cost was spent on creating the cardboard sets, noting that "Most people did the movie for basically no money," Some of the smaller parts were performed by Artists doing residencies at the nearby Pioneer Works studio. Green has stated that falling in love with his wife, Yasmin Green, heavily influenced the plot and that wedding vows that Aladdin gives are nearly identical to his own
After completing the project Green has stated that he had some problems distributing it with most film festivals stating finding it too "off brand". However, after releasing the trailer online, Green started to get offers for screening the film. Vice Media, also got in contact with Green after seeing the trailer asking him to pitch a TV show for their Viceland channel.
