Diary of a Deadbeat: The Story of Jim Vanbebber
Victor Bonacore, NY, Documentary Feature, 107:00, New York City Premiere!


Jim VanBebber, an uncompromising, underground, outlaw filmmaker from Greenville, Ohio has become one of the most infamous and controversial American independent filmmakers of our time. VanBebber brought us such cult classics as DEADBEAT AT DAWN (The first feature film made in Dayton, Ohio) MY SWEET SATAN, THE MANSON FAMILY, and many others.

Diary of a Deadbeat is a documentary that follows his life from his early super 8mm films to his strange days in Hollywood, to him trying to get a new exploitation film off the ground against all odds.

It features interviews with an eclectic group of artists such as Phil Ansemlo (Pantera), Richard Kern (Trangressive Film Director), Nivek Ogre (Skinny Puppy), Heidi Honeycutt (Fangoria), R.A the Rugged Man (Rapper), as well as many other directors, actors and artists from the underground world of cinema.

This is the story of the true independent.
