Travesty Films Retrospective

Post-screening Q&A with the Langley Punks & Travesty Films members, moderated by Jeff Krulik

When the going gets tough, it's time for a Travesty Films retrospective! AFI Silver once again pays tribute to the DC area's original homegrown comedy filmmakers the Langley Punks, a cult force throughout the '70s and early '80s. Eventually morphing into the comedy collective Travesty Group, their astonishing output in the days before video cameras included 11 short films, a kinescope tribute to classic comedy television, a collaboration with director Sam Raimi and a comedy album featuring "Rock and Roll Doctor," heralded by Dr. Demento as "one of the greatest novelty recordings of all time." This program includes their magnum opus, HYATTSVILLE HOLIDAY. The Washington Post called Travesty Group "hysterical." The New York Times called them "truly funny." But what do they know? See for yourself, if you dare. Program approximately 90 min. NOT RATED
