Rich Remsberg plays banjo as other Bastard Film Encounter attendees eat pizza from Klausies..
A bastard film is a film that does not fit into any particular category. Bastard films are offensive, disturbing or just plain nonsensical.
After watching two days of difficult films and video, film collector Greg Pierce let artist/performer/nurse Joan Vorderbruggen remove his stitches on stage – creating their own spectacle of odd hard to watch footage. Banjo accompaniment by collector/researcher/performer Rich Remsberg. While many Bastard Film attendees documented this event, this video was made by filmmaker/archivist Andy Lampert.
