Director Christopher Stoudt is making a documentary about Four Seasons Total Landscaping, a small business in Philadelphia that was unexpectedly thrust into the national spotlight after Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani accidentally hosted a press conference outside the company’s garage door instead of the Four Seasons Hotel.
Described as “apolitical” with a “feel-good tone,” “Four Seasons Total Documentary” will give a firsthand account of the rollercoaster journey that one business went through when it agreed to host a political press conference in the middle of the presidential election.
At the time, the landscaping company capitalized on the attention by selling T-shirts and other merchandise. It was also featured in a Super Bowl ad on Sunday night for Fiverr, an online marketplace for freelance services.
In the documentary, key executives of Four Seasons Total Landscaping, including owner Marie Siravo and director of sales Sean Middleton, attempt to explain the events leading up to the embarrassing debacle for the Trump campaign.
Stoudt says he’s honored and privileged to tell a story that the world has been waiting “months” to hear.
“After such a hard year, everyone needed a moment to laugh,” Stoudt said. “Little did we know it would come from a press conference that took place across the street from a crematorium (down the road from a sex shop). This film is a chance to wipe the slate clean, not just for Four Seasons Total Landscaping, but for the entire country.”
The documentary, which expects to complete production this month, was produced by Glen Zipper (“Challenger: The Final Flight,” “Dogs”) and Sean Stuart (“Tread,” “Whats My Name: Muhammad Ali”). “Four Seasons Total Documentary” is looking for a distributor.
“[Christopher’s] extraordinary access and unique vision for this film are really going to surprise audiences and defy expectations,” said producers Zipper and Stuart. “We can’t wait to share it with the world.”
