!Stop Picking On The Little Guy!

PRESS RELEASE
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

!STOP PICKING ON THE LITTLE GUY!

The feature THE SINFUL DWARF (due to play at the Seventh Annual INCREDIBLY STRANGE FILM FESTIVAL has upset the Classification Office and they are demanding the film be cut or banned from these shores.

Festival Director A. T Timpson. " I received a call explaining they had problems with one of the scenes in the film involving the titular tiny terror, a naked woman, chains and a silver handled cane. I'm given the choice of cutting the scene or seeing the whole film banned.

Granted the film is as morally bankrupt as they come but I was hoping they'd see it in the context of limited theatrical screenings inside a weird film festival.

It's not like non-adults will be lining up to see this flick. If the scene in question gets excised, we may end up portraying the missing footage by acting it out for audiences on stage.

If there are any actresses who don't mind being naked and attacked by a dwarf please call the cinema (09) 379 66 66. "
