Los Angeles Premiere! DIRTY OLD TOWN, 2010, 73 min. Dirs. Jenner Furst, Daniel Levin. In this gonzo tone poem, merchant Billy (William Leroy) has 72 hours to pay his rent and save his star-crossed junk store, the Bowery, from extinction. The ramshackle tent of antiquities lures a troop of misfits, freaks and renegades who form a tableau of carnival pageantry, white lies and victimless crime in this fleeting glimpse of Downtown New York. Nicholas Decegli, Janell Shirtcliff, Ashley Graham and Scott Dillin co-star. With music from Brian Jonestown Massacre, Elvis Perkins in Dearland, Slowdance and A.R.E. Weapons. [Blu Ray]Discussion following the film with actress Janell Shirtcliff.
