"Tiyan Baker's Hard As You Can bursts the moves of Fight Club's pent-up hyper masculine aggression & bravado into syncopated shards, fragments of the male gaze turned unsparingly onto itself.”
— James Hewison, film consultant and producer
Hard As You Can (2019) is a desktop documentary about the impact of David Fincher's 1999 film on the development of alt-right men's groups over the last two decades. It was commissioned by Prototype, an e-newsletter of experimental video art & short film, curated by Lauren Carroll Harris.
