Mon., Dec. 17, 9 p.m. 2012
Evil Wine's Invasion film series features the debut from award-winning production designer Greg Gibbs (Devil and Daniel Johnston, House of 1000 Corpses, Blade Runner). The film is an exotic documentary about John Edward Mermis, a first-rate oddball denizen of Long Beach, Calif., who collects pop ephemera, especially toys, books and works of "lowbrow art." He also has run a low-budget indie record company, turning out over 750 albums by over 550 groups, and helping to launch the careers of White Stripes, Hole, The Dwarfs, and Rocket from the Crypt, among many others.
