Experience the World Premiere of
“BLACKFIИGER, Misery Loves Company”
Three chances to catch the premiere showing of this Salem-made spy comedy
Salem, OR: It all started with a voice in his head.
That was the instigating force which inspired Adam Lansky to step into the world of filmmaking with his debut, feature-length creation “BLACKFIИGER, Misery Loves Company,” a Salem-made secret agent action comedy about a banana that stays lit AF, gets the ladies, and fights bad dudes.
And now, you can experience “BLACKFIИGER” at its world premiere on Saturday, November 3, at Chemeketa Community College.
“Everybody has some kind of internal voice and it serves a very specific purpose about what we are supposed to do. That’s the core of it,” Lansky said. “This idea came to me and I felt like I had no choice but to make it real… and a weed smoking secret agent banana is a content gap.”
A remix of the James Bond classic “Goldfinger,” the film is an absurdist comedy created by a cast and crew of all Salem talent (except for like one dude) that’s unpredictable and activates all the warm fuzzies you got. It’s also a finalist in the CCTV Salem Community Media Film Festival.
“I want people to laugh their asses off,” Lansky said. “That’s the most important thing…that everyone walks out of the theatre feeling wonderful and takes that good vibe everywhere they go.”
And as to whether we will be seeing Mr. Banana again, Lansky said, “I am a sucker for demand.
I would gladly retire the banana suit but if people are so enamoured, I think a sequel would definitely be possible.”
The screening is a black tie affair. Fancy dress is encouraged. There are three opportunities to see the film: 4:30, 6 and 7:30 p.m. and following each show will be a Q&A with cast and crew. Tickets are only available online in advance at brownpapertickets.com/event/3739017.
