Fantasia paid special tribute to cult director Buddy Giovinazzo on July 19th and 20th with the International Premiere of his new feature, LIFE IS HOT IN CRACKTOWN, and a special screening of the filmmaker's own 16mm answer print of his seldom-seen director's cut of COMBAT SHOCK. We were fortunate to also have an uncut version of LIFE IS HOT IN CRACKTOWN, and the crowd loved the film, and thought it was the most moving film of the festival thus far. Giovinazzo was in town to host both screenings - check out the photos below!
