Maybe There Will Be an Australian Screening of L.A. Zombies After All

When you announce more than two weeks in advance that you’re going to defy Australia’s Film Classification Board and screen Bruce LaBruce’s L.A. Zombies, is it an act of screwing the man, or a well-played stunt to continue driving interest in the bloody flick?

Or maybe it’s both for Richard Wolstencroft, director of the Melbourne Underground Film Festival, who says his upcoming screening is a “public disobedience freedom of speech event.” Its location remains a secret for now, but the venue will hold an estimated 200 people interested in seeing porn star Francois Sagat run around in torn clothing. Wolstencroft says he’s got LaBruce’s support.
