Dumbass From Dundas

1988, super 8, 7 minutes


In the middle of the Nevada desert, two lunkheads get tossed out of separate cars by their so-called friends. One guy is wearing a Twisted Sister t-shirt and one is wearing a Kiss t-shirt. They don't like each other. They have problems.

This film really resonated in the alternative film scene in the late 80s. Very few artsy fartsy film folk were shooting narrative, especially of the angst-filled variety. There was a hunger for this stuff. This predates, but anticipates, the underground film movement that would blossom in the early 90s.

Starring: Dan Day, Joshua Pollock, Ruta Radzins, Betsy Rose & Ray Wilcox. Music by Rabbit Season.
