LOST & FOUND FILM CLUB DOUBLE FEATURE: JABBERWALK (aka THIS IS AMERICA aka CRAZY RIDICULOUS AMERICAN PEOPLE) Parts I & II

On the eve of our great nation’s birth, we present an incredibly rare, double-stuffed celebration of raw, unfiltered U-S-A! FIRST: the ‘70s Italian mondo shock-u-mentary that holds a skewered funhouse mirror up to our own homegrown culture, gleefully transmitting the message that the most powerful nation on Earth is chock-full of dildo factories, cocaine churches, satanic black masses, fast-food shock therapy, co-ed prisons and a tidal wave of firearms — basically a barely heightened version of our true selves. NEXT UP: the totally freakazoid and even more brain-boiling 1980 sequel, This Is America, Part II! Back with a vengance, Part “Due” dishes out some of the best quasi-documentary portraits of a cracked America money can buy: bonkers stuff like subterranean NYC vermin eaters, morbidly obese SoCal superheroes, a topless car wash disco jam, ass-kicking nuns, vicious bounty hunters with a disdain for rock gig posters, and the outrageous San Francisco mayoral campaign of The Dead Kennedys’ Jello Biafra. Seriously, this thing’s a fucking hoot.

This Is America Pt. 1, Dir. Romano Vanderbes, 1977, 35mm, 97 min.
This Is America Pt. 2, Dir. Romano Vanderbes, 1980, 35mm, 102 min.
