Interview with filmmaker Andy Warpigs

  Straight Jacket Guerrilla Film Festival  (2017)

What does your film express about today’s generation?
Our film is kind of poking fun at the alienation of our generation. We're all poor and just doing the best with what we got, the side hustle generation!

What social circumstances lead you to make your new film?
Working with homeless and traveling artists as well as throwing house shows and other under the radar events in Phoenix and Tempe helped shape this project. The increased police presence has forced those in the art scene here to work in a more close knit way. We got away with a lot of shit for a while though, and encourage more people to do the same ;)

What do you think about the PINK8 Manifesto & Punk Cinema?
I dig the Pink8 Manifesto, and I think rebel cinema is the way forward. Hollywood tells the same boring stories over and over, and America fucking sucks anyway. Most of the people here read at a sixth grade level or lower. It's up to the creative's to keep the world provocative and interesting. 

Whats next for you?
We're releasing several new videos for the new Andy Warpigs album 'Counter Culture-Shock!' through DeLunula.com and planning more subversive activities through Los Angeles, Phoenix, Tempe, and Denver.
