Mondo Forty

mondforty2mondo film (from the Italian word for “world”) is an exploitation documentary film, sometimes resembling a pseudo-documentary and usually depicting sensational topics, scenes, or situations.

On Saturday, August 2nd I’m going to be having a small birthday party at the Overground Cinema in Philadelphia where we’ll be screening some classic Body Modification films. I’m still finalizing the roster, which will include a mix of professional documentaries like Dances Sacred and Profane and the Marionette alongside some of the classic homemade footage you’ve seen on Sacred Debris.

We’ll be screening them on a full sized movie theater screen. And there will be popcorn. What more can you ask for! As a thank you, anyone who’s contributed to Sacred Debris in any way- through our donate button, with providing media players or content, etc is invited to come and join the fun. Just contact me for information!

Oh. I forgot. Month to date (July) we’ve had almost 7000 viewers here on the blog. It would seem that there’s people enjoying the content we publish- and if everyone who enjoyed an article donated $1 we could easily buy the hardware we need to add new (old) content. So. If you’re feeling generous- please hit the donate button on the right. Consider it a birthday present. Feeling appreciated for what we do goes a long way to keeping the site online.
