Hombre Kabuki: Upcoming Screenings

Hombre Kabuki

Hombre Kabuki is a short film directed by Leo Age that played in 2006 at the Calgary, Boston, Atlanta and Antimatter Underground Film Festivals. Read the Underground Film Journal review here.

The film also won the Best Drama Short award at the Atlanta Underground Film Festival; played a zillion other festivals and producer Cary Becker has sent me a list of other upcoming festivals where the film can be seen this fall, which I am listing below. These aren’t “underground festivals,” but the film has had a great run at several undergrounds, so I’m happy to give the film a plug. A review should be up shortly (although “shortly” to me probably has a different meaning to people waiting to have their films reviewed — but I’ll have it up.)

Here’s the film’s official tagline:

Lust, Trust and Lucha Libre. Lovers enact a game of duping and disguise with a mysterious Mexican wrestling mask.

And here are the fests it will be playing the next two months:
