Sharkula: Diarrhea of a Madman is an in-depth comprehensive look at the gritty, surreal art and Hip-Hop music of local Chicago MC/street hustler Sharkula and the community that buzzes around him. The film explores the many facets of his unusual work: his role as manager and marketing machine; dealing with other rappers in the city who try to bring him down; the struggles that he faces on a daily basis in dealing with the public; and his loathing of the Internet. The film investigates Sharkula’s complex perspective of himself: is he an outsider artist or a rising star…or both?
