Pig out

They’ve been around long enough that they don’t qualify as “recent” transplants to Santa Fe anymore, but indieground (that’s indie and underground) filmmakers Jon Moritsugu and Amy Davis (Fame Whore, Terminal USA, Mod Fuck Explosion) are finally taking the wrapper off their first made-in-New Mexico feature. Pig Death Machine is a lo-fi horror-comedy involving contaminated tamales, brilliant bimbos, punk rock botanists, telepathic plants and animated meat. Think John Waters crossed with David Cronenberg and you’re halfway there. After screenings at several international film festivals—and a local premiere at the Santa Fe Independent Film Festival—this cheeky freakout is finally hitting theaters around the state. It will play at the CCA Cinematheque (1050 Old Pecos Trail) in Santa Fe, Dec. 6-8, at 9:15pm. Moritsugu and Davis will be on hand to introduce the show and participate in a post-film Q&A. Tickets are $8, $6 for members. If you can’t make it up the road this weekend, it’s booked at Albuquerque’s Guild Cinema on February 4.
