Tromaville: A Celluloid Love Story (Working Title)

: Documentary Feature
GENRE: Documentary
STATUS: Production


Lloyd Kaufman (The Toxic Avenger) is an iconic b-movie director who has contributed a library of 800+ films to his genre. Fiercely independent, he thrives at the outskirts of Hollywood where he has the freedom to shock. When his wife, Pat Kaufman, pledges their retirement savings to produce his film #SHAKESPEARE'S SH*TSTORM, her standards and hopes intersect and conflict with Kaufman's outrageous vision for what he says will be his last film.
