King Dong dips us into the aesthetically manicured world of never-known comedy filmmaker Len Cella. Making films and videos since the 1960s, this one-man production unit makes the lowest-brow art with all the seriousness of an auteur. His apartment is a living film set, his day job as a house painter is interrupted by stints on the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, and growing old only makes him stronger- physically and artistically. Come take a VHS-tinted glimpse into Broomall, Pennsylvania’s comedy shorts anti-legend.
