“Shut Up Little Man!: An Audio Misadventure” to Premiere at Sundance Film Fest, January 22


They are urban legend — Raymond and Peter, the raging alcoholic roommates from San Francisco’s Lower Haight, whose drunken tirades were captured by their neighbors on audiotape back in late 1980s.

Now, two decades later, their story is re-told by Australian filmmaker Matthew Bate via interviews, old film clips, music by DEVO side project The Wipeouters and, of course, classic audiotape excerpts in Shut Up Little Man: An Audio Misadventure, premiering this Saturday at the Sundance Film Festival.

Early buzz shows just a few tickets are left.

Bate has an innovative way of putting urban legend to film as was witnessed in his short doc The Mystery of the Flying Kicks shown at SXSW last year. Now he takes on the feature length format.

Various types in San Francisco (yes, we know who we are!) giddily await SULM’s local premiere, hopefully in the not too distant future.
