"Pity me, I'm a Batman collector."

BATMAN

AND ME

SYNOPSIS

Darren Maxwell became addicted to collecting Batman merchandise in late 1980s Australia as a way to be a part of nascent geek culture. Decades later, Darren's stuck with a room full of collectables - a membership card to a fandom he no longer recognises - yet powerful forces beyond his control mean he's unable to let go.

BATMAN AND ME is a sobering look

at the highs and lows of obsessive collecting

in an increasingly pop culture-centric world,

and the price of admission to fandom.
