Coming soon to your DVD player - Mardi Gras: Made in China & a bunch of other real indie movies from Carnivalesque

From Carnivalesque Films:

"June 4, 2008 - Carnivalesque Films will release the Award Winning documentary MARDI GRAS: MADE IN CHINA in stores everywhere on July 29, 2008. Winner of twenty national and international awards, Mardi Gras: Made in China follows the path of Mardi Gras beads from the naked streets of New Orleans during Carnival – where revelers party and exchange beads for nudity – to the disciplined factories in Fuzhou, China – where teenage girls live and sew beads together all day and night. Blending curiosity with comedy, Mardi Gras: Made in China is the only film to explore how the toxic products directly affect the people who both make and consume them.

Carnivalesque Films is a new production and distribution company whose goal is to explore how personal stories relate to complex social issues. David Redmon and Ashley Sabin - directors of the award winning films KAMP KATRINA and INTIMIDAD - founded Carnivalesque Films and will release three award winning films ORPHANS (SXSW, Jury Award - Ry Russo-Young), THE HOLY MODAL ROUNDERS: BOUND TO LOSE (Slamdance - Paul Lovelace and Sam Douglas), and MANHATTAN, KANSAS (SXSW, Audience Award - Tara Wray) on September 28, October 30, and November 16, 2008. Other releases coming soon: LOW AND BEHOLD, INTIMIDAD, and ODYSSEY OF A TIN MAN."
