Gotham tells the true story of what happened in New York City during the twenty years from 1993 to 2013. How did a city with over 2200 murders, 93,000 violent robberies and 147,000 car thefts in 1990 become the capitol of the world a mere handful of years later? This feature documentary explores what happened during these decades, told by the people who did the hard work, some at great personal and professional cost. 
From Fear City to the City of Dreams. Hear about the greatest American turnaround story from the people who made it happen.

Director Biography - Matthew Taylor

Matthew Taylor is an American artist and technologist who works in film, sculpture, and photography.

Taylor was classically training in painting, drawing, art history and theory, but moved into filmmaking in the late 90’s while still in art school. Starting with short concept films, digital installations, music videos and fashion films, Taylor eventually started making documentaries.

As a filmmaker, Taylor has filmed all over the world in 25 countries including Argentina, Guatemala, Poland, Italy, France, Chili, Germany, and Albania. He has conducted interviews with a range of talent including former presidents, leading CEOs, world leaders, groundbreaking artists, best-selling authors, astronauts, and creative thinkers. To date, he has completed more than 150 short films, fashion works, ballet and dance pieces and directed seven feature documentaries and two short films.

In 2015, Taylor wrote and directed Los Abandonados, a Spanish-language feature documentary about the assassination of Alberto Nisman in Argentina. The film aided in the derailment of Kristina Kirchner’s crony government.

In 2020, Taylor released Marcel Duchamp: The Art of The Possible, a feature length documentary on the life and work of Marcel Duchamp, exploring the critical underpinnings of art in the 20th and 21st centuries.

Last year, Taylor directed a short film entitled Invisible Hand which explores the nature of memory and transference of other’s memories, and the physiological toll trauma exerts on one’s ability to recall events.

Taylor possesses a filmmaking skill set that ranges across every aspect of film production from director of photography to editor. He enjoys being “hands on” in all production projects and will pick up the camera himself to get certain shots. =

He is currently working on a conceptual art-rock album Arcadia Sky as well as a mock-u-mentary to accompany the album’s release and is in pre-production on a new narrative feature film.

USA 2019 Documentary 89 minutes

THE CREEPY LINE a documentary film by M.A.Taylor 2018, 80 minutes

"A film that Google does not want you to see  - one of my Best for Fest"

An eye-opening documentary, The Creepy Line reveals the stunning degree to which society is manipulated by Google and Facebook and blows the lid off the remarkably subtle – hence powerful – manner in which they do it.

The Creepy Line is a title culled from the words of former Google CEO Eric Schmidt, when during a 2010 interview he explained Google’s code of conduct: “The Google policy on a lot of things is to get right up to the creepy line and not cross it.”

However, as Dr. Robert Epstein explains in the film, “Google crosses the creepy line every day”. 

Offering first-hand accounts, scientific experiments and detailed analysis, The Creepy Line examines what is at risk when these two tech titans have free reign to utilize the public’s most private and personal data to manipulate society.

There is no question that the “creepy line” is getting ever-creepier, and that the tech giants have crossed it.
