POSTMODERNISM: WHO CARES? THE COMPLETE JON MORITSUGU

Combining the tropes of 60s art-house cinema with the primitive punk aesthetics of the Cinema of Transgression, Jon Moritsugu has been making movies far outside the mainstream for over twenty-five years. While his work has screened at venues as high profile as the Sundance, Berlin and Toronto Film Festivals and even public television, he continually shirks convention and classification. After making his name with a series of hand-made 16mm features, he's recently embraced video with a fervor and a freeness to which every young filmmaker should be paying attention. Moritsugu's world is overflowing with eye-popping production design, eardrum-destroying rock 'n' roll, gross-outs aplenty and deadpan one-liners you'll be quoting for weeks.

We're proud to present the first complete retrospective of Jon's work, including every feature and short he's produced to date, along with the New York premiere of his newest movie, PIG DEATH MACHINE. Also in the line-up are his impossible-to-find shorts like DER ELVIS, SLEAZY RIDER and LITTLE DEBBIE, SNACK WHORE OF NEW YORK CITY! Plus two uber-rare 16mm screenings of his masterpiece, MOD FUCK EXPLOSION!

Like all true artists, Jon Moritsugu thrives under the limits of his budgets- producing an oeuvre of punk classics and establishing him as DIY icon.
