I was given the pleasure of speaking with the legendary Lloyd Kaufman regarding Occupy Cannes and why the hell you should give a shit about Independent Film and especially Troma. For 40 years these people have brought you films because it's what they love and not because it'll get you to spend 50 bucks on tickets, popcorn, and soda. I define art as that which is created through a passion for expression and is valued by becoming a link between artist and consumer on a deep level. Therefore, in my world, Troma is an arthouse and one of the last of them in America. You can support Mr. Kaufman and his Occupy Cannes project by clicking on this link.
