Giuseppe Makes a Movie (2014) Red Band Trailer
Red band trailer for the documentary Giuseppe Makes a Movie.
While the rest of America slept, DIY filmmaker/musician Giuseppe Andrews has made over 30 experimental features set in some demented alternate universe, 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. Through it all, Giuseppe makes his misfit acting troupe feel special, loved and like movie stars.
Director Adam Rifkin creates a wildly surreal and strangely touching portrait of a truly Outsider Artist inhabiting a world few of us even know exists. He follows Giuseppe and his seriously impaired troupe on the production of his latest 2-day opus, Garbanzo Gas, starring Vietnam Ron as a Cow given a weekend reprieve from the slaughterhouse at the local motel. Beyond the sun-stroked Theater of the Absurd madness of Giuseppe’s vision, there is a remarkable and endearing sense of family among the director, his amiably bonkers dad Ed, patient girlfriend Mary, Sir Bigfoot George and the rest of his surreal Trailer Park rep company. GMaM is an official selection of the Hot Docs Documentary Festival, the Los Angeles Film Festival and the Rooftop Film Series and coming to theaters in Los Angeles.
