This is just crazy. Manure, the short I co-wrote with Michael Schwartz for the ABC's of Death 26th Director contest is going to be screening in Yubari, Japan this weekend!
Tomorrow, as part of a twelve-hour marathon of mayhem and madness at the Yubari Chamber of Commerce, Manure will be one of ten ABC submissions that were handpicked by Yoshihiro Nishimura himself. The maniac who brought us Tokyo Gore Police likes our shit!
It warms my heart to know that our humble short will be playing before a live S&M event featuring Eihi Shiina (of Audition fame) and a screening of Brian Yuzna's 2005 flick Beneath Still Waters.
What is most awesome is that Manure has now been subtitled in Japanese. Schwartz tells me we'll be getting a copy, and I can't wait to see what “shit for brains” looks like in Japanese.
