While the rest of America slept, former teen actor Giuseppe Andrews has made over 30 experimental features with titles like Doily’s Summer of Freak Occurrences, Trailer Town and Utopia Blues. Set in some demented alternate universe (i.e. Ventura, California), they are populated by real-life alcoholics and drug addicts, trash-talking senior citizens and trailer park residents dressed in cow outfits and costume-shop wigs, acting out booze-fueled vignettes of severe psychosis filtered through Giuseppe’s John Waters-meets-Harmony Korine-meets-Werner Herzog sensibility.
Here are a few trailers and clips from his films to get you prepared for a special screening of the new documentary Giuseppe Makes a Movie, from acclaimed director Adam Rifkin, which screens on Saturday, April 4 at 9pm with Adam Rifkin and producer Mike Plante in person. Buy tickets here
