Birdemic: Shock and Terror

Location: Silent Movie Theatre, 611 North Fairfax Avenue, Los Angeles, CA

Description: A reprise screening of the surprise cult film, which has apparently become a camp favorite because audiences enjoy laughing at it. The most discussed and anticipated avian-based disaster film since the The Birds, Birdemic is equal parts epochal tale and cinematic warning shot. It tells the story of a couple unexpectedly and unforgettably caught in the eye of a feather-based storm -- an apocalyptic attack winging down from the skies in a twisted morass of feathers, talons and blood-soaked claws. And the man that fired the shot across the diegetic bow of cineastes everywhere? That would be writer/director/dream factory foreman James Nguyen. One of cinema's most persistent imagineers, Nguyen (legally trademarked as "The Master of the Romantic Thriller"™) funded his masterwork with savings accrued from his day job as a Silicon Valley software salesman. No less than five years in the making, Birdemic stands as a testament to Nguyen's dark, enduring vision. Director James Nguyen will be here at the Cinefamily to give the crowd an introduction to the film before the show! Digital presentation.
