The 2013 Hollywood Fringe Festival in conjunction with We Make Movies' WMM Fest has announced that the Eric Michael Kochmer written and directed Sci-Fi Noir Way Down in Chinatown will be book-ending the festival with midnight screenings on the 15th and 29th June 2013.
Set against the production of a musical theatre piece about the apocalypse WDiC chronicles over-sexed theatre couple Victor and Jessica Mitchum as they struggle to fund their play all the while suffering through the slow deterioration of the world and the dark seduction of an underworld movement determined to hand pick the survivors.
Described by director Kochmer as "the best god-damn movie since Erik Von Stronheim presented Greed to Warner Bros. in 1926" you can check out the film official page [here], read our review [here] and book tickets for the screening [here].
