Bacchanale is an inspired adult arthouse film from the tail end of the "grindhouse" era. I discovered the film four years ago while exploring the community of self-appointed librarians of lost exploitation and porn films. Bacchanale is currently not available commercially - in fact we are working to track down any surviving prints.
This remix project involved cutting the original film into its individual scenes which were passed out to 50 artists to create entirely new audio for the visuals in their clip. The clips were reassmbled back into the feature length film, which debuted at Monkey Town in December 2006.
At the NYUFF screening were participating artists Luke Dubois, Bradley Eros, Nick Hallett and Zach Layton. Nick has been corresponding with John Amero, who was unable to attend but gave his approval to our reappropriation of his film.
Thanks to Mo Johnson and everyone at NYUFF!
