Earlier this month, I got a phone call from the fine folks at the Alamo Drafthouse. They wanted to know if I’d be interested in spending some time with the guys from Klovn (or Klown, to our English-speaking friends), a filthy Danish comedy I’d seen—and passionately loved—back when it premiered during last year’s Fantastic Fest. This little meetup would include a canoe trip up the Guadalupe River with the film’s stars, with Frank Hvam and Casper Christensen, an outdoor screening of the film, and a whole lotta beer. It seemed that Drafthouse Films had picked the film up for U.S. distribution, and they were looking to get the word out about the film. Did I want to go?
Lemme tell ya, folks: if the Alamo Drafthouse ever calls and asks if you wanna go up the Guadalupe River on a canoe trip that ends with a booze-soaked screening of their movie on the banks of the river (via the Rolling Roadshow’s giant, inflatable screen), you say “Yes”. Read my report from this awesome weekend (and a review of Klown!) after the jump.
