The Arlene Grocery Film Festival’s superlative idea to hand the mic over to Abel Ferrara for a surreal free variety show has been gloriously captured in this upload from mistervonvideos. Suffice it to say that no words can do this clip justice. The Youtube description reads:
“The Arlene’s Grocery Film Festival lets Abel Ferrara take over the place for a free show. Madness ensues. His friend recites Shakespeare, a street singer belts out the Stones, Zoe Lund’s husband shows up, and a crazy woman thinks Ferrara is Roman Polanski. Ferrara shows a couple of music videos he directed and then clips from Bad Lieutenant with his inimitable commentary. Asia Argento makes a brief appearance with her 2 year old daughter.”
Many thanks to Cinephilia and Beyond for bringing it to our attention.
