“Tights Worship”, the short film about THE RITA produced by KIER-LA JANISSE, has been selected as one of the favourite pieces on Nicolas Winding Refn’s (director: Drive, The Neon Demon, etc.) byNWR website. Sam McKinlay (The Rita) created an original sound piece called “Spiked Heels and Black Nylons” (inspired by Whit Boyd’s 1967 film of the same name) and Mike McKinlay (documentary film maker and Sam’s brother) documented his artistic process in a 30 minute documentary, which is interspersed by insights into Sam’s various obsessions from sharks and gialli to Italian frogmen and the classical ballet. The documentary can be viewed at bynwr.com along with the “Spike Heels…” audio track.

Select titles from the recent batch are headed to SSSM in Japan.

As far as the distro update goes: it’s big one, as promised. Don’t get burned by the heat within!
