UPCOMING PDM SCREENINGS

In the summer of 2013, PIG DEATH MACHINE and the MORITSUGU RETROSPECTIVE were screened at the Downtown Independent (LA), Roxie Theater (SF) and the Spectacle Theater (Williamsburg, Brooklyn)... 7 features, 9 shorts, one week of eyeball-peeling, ear-drum pounding insanity, spanning over 25 years of cinematic MAYHEM. If you couldn't be there in person, you missed out. As a consolation, here's something to scan:

THE KATIE GIRLS
"What's your favourite movie? Is it mostly about the scene or visuals in a movie that would get you?"
TODD SELBY
"Mod Fuck Explosion by Jon Moritsugu. You've got to check it out. The dialogue, the acting, the visuals, the soundtrack - it's my favourite movie so it's got to win on all counts, right?"



COVER STORY
ALIBI
Albuquerque's Alibi featured Jon Moritsugu and Amy Davis on their cover, with newz on PIG DEATH MACHINE and their GRAMMY NOMINATION.

DID YOU KNOW...?
FAME WHORE was considered for an
ACADEMY AWARD in 1999, but was rejected because it was screened in 16mm? Apparently, all Academy Award films must be screened in 35mm... BOGUS!
