The Agoo Art Factory, led by Tony Juliano, announces the release of its third film, Like A Burlap Mitten Cast in Carbonite. Featuring an array of local actors, including Lurt Bancaster (pictured), whose identity must be kept secret, the film is inspired by Like a Velvet Glove Cast in Iron by Daniel Clowes. You might be familiar with a film made out of another of Clowes' graphic novels: Ghost World. The film will be released at A Dark Room film festival, another Juliano creation. In addition to the work of many local filmmakers, A Dark Room will feature live music from the Clams (they did the movie's score) and a catsuit costume piñata burlesque act. Following the screenings, local blues band Someone You Can X-ray will tear it up. Remember to tip the bartender.
