MORE ON TROMA'S "OCCUPY CANNES":
Lead by Troma Entertainment's Lloyd Kaufman, the Occupy Cannes movement will use the Cannes Film Festival to draw attention to the disparity in opportunity between the mega-media conglomerates and independent artists. "Give art back to the people," exhorts Kaufman. In its acclaimed 2002 documentary "All the Love You Cannes," Troma discussed and established that the mega media-conglomerates have smothered most of the art world and are not going away. With the Occupy Cannes demonstrations at Cannes and the forthcoming documentary of the same name, Troma is aiming to level the playing field and to inform independent artistsas to how they can better co-exist with, work around, and change the mainstream to promote truly independent art in all its forms.
Established in 1974 by Yale friends Lloyd Kaufman and Michael Herz, Troma Entertainment is one of the longest-running independent movie studios in United States history, and it's one of the best-known names in the industry. World famous for movie classics like Kaufman's "The Toxic Avenger", "Poultrygeist: Night of the Chicken Dead", "Class of Nuke 'em High", "Mother's Day" and "Tromeo & Juliet", Troma's seminal films are now being remade as big-budget mainstream productions by the likes of Brett Ratner, Richard Saperstein, Akiva Goldsman and Steven Pink.
