Culture on the Cheap
Discovered On The Interwebs: Krackoon
When I saw these pictures by Mohdi* on Flickr I simply had to know what the deal was. As many of you are well aware, I have had the occasional encounter with these critters. I spied a url, www.krackoon.com so I typed and clicked. Here’s what this film is about per their “about” page:
…The Bronx is facing a new problem. The over development of our waterfronts has forced animals such as raccoons, skunks and possums to invade neighborhoods like Locust Point in search of food and shelter which has been denied by the raising of these structures. Unknown to anyone, a crack addicted raccoon with a craving for blood enters the town of Locust Point adding a new dimension to the growing problem. Along the way, we are introduced to a cast of characters out of a demented Norman Rockwell painting, people you have a hard time warming up to, the real monsters in this story…
My advice: check out the second trailer, it’s hilarious.
Or better yet: check out it this upcoming Tuesday, July 27 at the New York International Independent Film & Video Festival!
*Who has also promised me a one minute interview with the creator of this cinematic masterpiece. I can hardly wait to see it! Here it is!
