Boston Underground Film Festival XIII
March 24 - March 31, 2011
The 13th annual Boston Underground Film Festival brings its annual barrage of bizarre and under-appreciated film and video from all over the world to the Kendall Square Cinema, opening with the New England premiere of HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN, the 2011 Sundance sensation starring Rutger Hauer. Based on one of the faux trailers in 2007’s GRINDHOUSE, Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez’s horror film double feature, the film tells the story of a homeless man who takes the law into his own hands after witnessing a brutal crime in a city where crime and the crime boss reign. Producer Rob Cotterill and director Jason Eisener, the team behind the Sundance award-winning short TREEVENGE (BUFF 2008), will hold a Q&A after the screening.
Other narrative films include the New England premieres of Adam Wingard’s (POP SKULL) A HORRIBLE WAY TO DIE, Caleb Emerson’s (DIE YOU ZOMBIE BASTARDS!) FRANKIE IN BLUNDERLAND, and award-winning, underground filmmaker Usama Alshaibi’s (NICE BOMBS) PROFANE. Providence filmmaker Richard Griffin will present the Boston premiere of ATOMIC BRAIN INVASION, and Trent Haaga (DEADGIRL screenwriter) will present the North American premiere of his directorial debut, CHOP.
Opening night will also feature a party with a sci-fi/sexploitation twist at TT the Bears Place in Cambridge starting at 8:30 PM. Performers include Trabants, Emperor Norton's Stationary Marching Band, and Math the Band.
