When Drafthouse Films, the Alamo Drafthouse's film distribution branch, started up last year, it became clear fairly quickly that the company would be making some rather bold choices. Given Drafthouse's selections for Fantastic Fest, Drafthouse Films' own roster would surely fall in line with the sort of edgy genre fare hosted at their annual festival every year. So when they announced the acquisition of 'Klown,' based on the Danish television series of the same name, it was fair to assume that the film would be something special -- and special it is, though that may be an understatement.
Last month, the fine folks at the Alamo Drafthouse set up a fantastic experience for a very special screening of the new Danish film 'Klown,' which hits theaters this Friday courtesy of Drafthouse Films. For the event, we took a journey to the Guadalupe river for a canoe trip with the film's creators, and stars Casper Christensen and Frank Hvam, followed by a special outdoor screening and an interview with them the next morning.
