This film was found in the basement of a vacating business in Rochester, New York in 2004. The decomposition of the emulsion, combined with the vivid color and movements of the carnival rides, creates a beautiful film reminiscent of the work of filmmakers Peter Delpeut and Bill Morrison. Also available on the DVD "Living Room Cinema: Films From Home Movie Day, Vol. I"

Behind the scenes footage of a Spaghetti Western in production in Spain, 1975. Gorgeous footage that takes us right inside the extravagant, but totally lo-fi, sets and action. Diane Dobronte shares the story behind the film that goes behind the film: It was 1975 and my boyfriend,  Tony Anthony , had written, produced and was starring in an American-Italian co-production film called  Get Mean  – in the spaghetti western genre. Tony had already done several of these:  The Stranger in Town...
