The Power of Pork

When: Fri., May 23 2014

Famous for cult movies such as Scumrock, Mod Fuck Explosion and Hippy Porn, director Jon Moritsugu took a decade-long break — during which time he battled a serious case of writer’s block — before returning to the director’s chair for Pig Death Machine. The film’s storyline centers on a shipment of pork that enables a woman to become a genius. The film has camp appeal and has drawn comparisons to the work of B-movie master John Waters. It’s so bad, it’s good, and it’s won awards at some of the underground festivals where it’s shown. It makes its local premiere tonight at 7:30 at the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque and it shows again at 9:30 tomorrow night. Tickets are $9. (Niesel)
