Description: "Midnight Movies: From the Margin to the Mainstream" focuses on six movies that re-invented the film medium while pushing the boundaries of bad taste and social taboos. They are: "El Topo" (1970), "Night of the Living Dead" (1968), "The Harder They Come" (1973), "Pink Flamingos" (1972), "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" (1975), and "Eraserhead" (1977). The documentary includes in-depth interviews with the directors, producers, writers and actors who were part of these low-budget, yet monumental productions, the exhibitors and distributors who played them, and the audiences who viewed them. These filmmakers shared a common desire to upset the traditional aspects of making films--taking filmmaking beyond the norm by making films for ritual viewing, not box office success."
