A special screening of THE 78 PROJECT MOVIE, documenting a journey across America to make one-of-a-kind 78rpm records with musicians in their hometowns using a 1930s Presto direct-to-disc recorder. With one microphone. With one blank disc. In one 3-minute take. Along the way, a kaleidoscope of technologists, historians and craftsmen from every facet of field recording – Grammy-winning producers, 78 collectors, curators from the Library of Congress and Smithsonian – provide insights and history.
In Tennessee, Mississippi, California, Louisiana, the folk singers, punk rockers, Gospel and Cajun singers in the film share their lives through intimate performances, and find in that adventure a new connection to our cultural legacy
SPECIAL GUESTS: With filmmakers ALEX STEYERMARK and LAVINIA JONES WRIGHT in attendance, and live Presto record cutting session with PATTERSON HOOD!
Celebrating the very worst that cinema has to offer, Bad Movie Night presents the over-edited, action-packed incompetence of OVERKILL. Mickey “Mike” Delano (played by real life hunk and Playgirl’s Man of the Year 1985, Steve Rally) is a perpetually shirtless police detective working the mean streets of Little Toyko at the height of mid-80s Japan-phobic hysteria.
Convinced that the Yakuza is only a few sushi bars away from controlling the entire west coast, Mickey goes against his captain’s orders and infiltrates the organization, getting his comically inept partner killed in the process. Although his partner forgets to load his gun occasionally, Mickey feels responsible for his death, and after a quick sauna break, he joins forces with a visiting Tokyo cop well-versed in dealing with the Yakuza.
Can this unlikely pair defeat the entire west coast underworld in a mere 80 minutes? And can you really teach yourself how to be a samurai sushi chef in a few days? And was this movie actually edited by a blindfolded toddler? Find out as we screen Miami Connection’s long-lost weird uncle OVERKILL this month, only at Bad Movie Night!
