New documentary on Troma and Lloyd Kaufman in production!

Filmmaker Adrian Esposito is currently working on a new documentary film, Greetings From Tromaville, about the life and work of independent film champion, Lloyd Kaufman.

Lloyd and Michael Herz founded Troma Entertainment, a film company that produces edgy, bold, humorous and sometimes “over the top” films. Their films make a strong statement about visual art and its psychological effect on viewers. Troma films now have a world wide fan base and cult following. In fact, upon the announcement of the production of a Troma film, fans travel from all over the world just for the experience of being in a Troma production. Many come at their own cost and work in challenging circumstances.

Independent films like Troma’s, with innovative and shocking content, ultimately contributed to a change in Hollywood films, which followed Troma’s lead in presenting more graphic visuals. But behind their facade of sex and violence are often topical or political themes that even today Hollywood films won’t touch..

This film is a break from Espocinema’s usual presentations. Adrian Esposito is a Troma fan and intends to honor Lloyd Kaufman and his contribution to the art of filmmaking and independent films (and filmmakers).

Hold on to your seats — this will be a shocker!
