the award-winning documentary
ABEL RAISES CAIN is now available on DVD!
ABEL RAISES CAIN is an unprecedented glimpse into the life and bizarre career of Alan Abel,the infamous underground media prankster. He has made a name for himself several times over with stunts that are just ridiculous enough to be believable, especially to a media that feeds on salacious, far-fetched stories.
In this loving portrait of an eccentric father, Alan's daughter, Jenny, tells her firsthand account of what it was like growing up with a prankster. ABEL RAISES CAIN takes the audience on a roller coaster ride through the myriad of elaborate hoaxes and schemes that Abel pulled off over the years, all of which were designed to provoke and amuse...while at the same time, make people question everything that they see, hear and read.
