Dan Halstead, master of the grindhousefilmfest and the super cool Slums Of Shaolin has unearthed a veritable treasure trove of Kung Fu Films! Deep in the bowels of an old Chinese movie theater, in an inner city crack zone, Dan and his intrepid pal Leno unearthed these lost gems and brought them to the light of arc lamps for the first time in many years, all I can say is Bravo! And when can we get to watch! Check out more here: Treasure of the Forgotten Temple
We here at Film Forno believe in supporting independent film. In that spirit we present the trailer for Determinism, a feature by the Brothers Majumdar, identical twin filmmakers from back East. The film looks great, a lot of cool images in the trailer as you can see for yourself, excellent sound design, Check it out. I haven’t seen the film yet so I can’t comment on it but they did a great job with the trailer
And here is a link to the website about the film: CLICK ME!
Here’s a link to the great Meshes Of The Afternoon by Maya Deren and her husband Alexander Hamid. This was required watching in Film School and it expresses Hollywood 1943 Art Film like no other except maybe Kenneth Anger’s Fireworks. Underground Film in all it’s glory!
