Cannibal Holocaust [35mm]
DIRECTED BY RUGGERO DEODATO IN ENGLISH STARRING ROBERT KERMAN, FRANCESCA CIARDI, PERRY PIRKANEN (1980)
Banned and heavily censored throughout the world, this Video Nasty is by far one of the most controversial films ever made. The film presents the “found footage” of four documentary filmmakers who experience a brutal death at the hands of a savage tribe of South American flesh-eaters. The special effects were so realistic, director Deodato was arrested on charges of making a snuff film, accused of murdering the actors! Screening in a restored, uncensored film print.
Also playing May 26 at midnight.
