Confessionsofa Ex-Doofus-Itchyfooted Mutha at Maryland Film Festival

A new movie by Melvin Van Peebles. Read about it here at MD fest's site. From the site:

"Telling the fantastic, mystical tale of a man with few resources who joyfully becomes a merchant marine, travels far and wide, and enjoys a wide variety of romantic entanglements, the film champions independent exploration. Distilling years of cultural experience through the eyes of one lone adventurer, the film pulls us into its protagonist's world with cunning and magic. Melvin Van Peebles himself, with only a glancing reference to his chronological age of 75, plays the lead character as he progresses from young boy to middle age. Kaleidoscopic, epic, and handmade, sweeping but intensely personal, this is the perfect incarnation of Melvin Van Peebles’ indefinable and singular artistic career."

Film screens May 4 @ 7:30 PM @ the Charles theater in Baltimore, MD; buy tix here.
