“It features the sexiest spaghetti-eating scene since ‘Lady and the Tramp.'” So says Oscilloscope Laboratories’ Dan Berger and David Laub of “Buzzard,” a film about a scam-artist who ends up drifting to Detroit. The company just acquired North American rights to the film ahead of its debut at SXSW. The film next heads to the New Directors / New Films at Lincoln Center (which runs March 19-30).
Filmmaker Joel Potrykus (winner of Best Emerging Director and Best First Feature at Locarno 2012) said, “We’re all psyched to have Oscilloscope releasing our crazy movie. They get it. We’re out to slash the face of corporate America, one screen at a time. And we’re just looking for justice and a big bag of Doritos.”
O-Scope plans further
festival play followed by a theatrical release later this year.
