Pulp, Trash, Love!
BY ANDREW LEAVOLD
@ VOL 19
ON SEP 16, 2016
"It all started with a mad dream, and somehow I managed to get that out of the ether and onto the big screen. It's a kind of an alchemy and a magical process when you think about. Dreams can come true, even if they are horribly true."
In Pulp, Trash, Love! from PechaKucha Night Sunshine Coast Vol. 19, we hear from Andrew Leavold, an unrepentant and voracious fan of the pulpier aspects of genre cinema. Documenting his hunt for the enigmatic two-foot-nine Filipino James Bond, Andrew has since toured the world with his feature length documentary The Search For Weng Weng (2013). A PhD candidate at Brisbane's Griffith University, Leavold's thesis is soon to be published as a book entitled "Bamboo Gods And Bionic Boys: A History Of Pulp Film-making In The Philippines”. Now based in Maroochydore, Andrew Leavold owned and managed Brisbane's Trash Video, the largest cult video rental store in Australia, from 1995 to 2010. He is also a film-maker, published author, researcher, film festival curator, musician, TV presenter, and above all, pulp cinema devotee.
