DukeFest Zero is Bringing the Bizarre to London for Four Amazing Nights

Evrim Ersoy and Alex Kidd have been conducting the Duke Mitchell Film Club for six years now, showing obscure trailers, bizarre shorts, mind-boggling music videos and strange features to a captive audience. Now, they've expanded it to the first ever 4-day DukeFest Zero! From Sunday June 30th to Wednesday July 2nd, at the Prince Charles Cinema and the Phoenix Artists Club, there will be music, a program of crazy trailers, the European premiere of My Name is Jonah, and a 30th anniversary screening of that one-and-one sci fi Nazi musical Strangers in Paradise. Details and schedule are in the press release below, and there are some trailers to wet your appetite.

Welcome to DukeFest Zero, the first-ever Duke Mitchell Film Club film festival! We've assembled 4-nights of the most entertaining, enjoyable and downright strangest films and events we could think of. We've got premieres, special guests, an anniversary screening, a mystery trailer reel, a live translation by someone who doesn't speak the film's language and much more.

Schedule

At once a portrait and a gateway into the weird and wonderful world of Jonah this film tells the story of the man who's a martial artist, an adventurer, a vigilante and an internet icon!

You will be hard pressed to believe your eyes as Jonah's story slowly reveals a man who has been dressing as Punisher, Robin Hood, Sinbad, Highlander and more to create the most outrageous holiday cards found on the face of the Universe, all the while living a life that most of us dream of involving swords, karate, Russian brides and much, much more.
