Slamdance 2016: DEAD HANDS DIG DEEP Trailer Explores Madness And Music
As per usual, anyone headed to Slamdance 2016 film festival will have a dizzying array of truly independent features and shorts from which to choose. This includes documentaries on odd subjects, such as Dead Hands Dig Deep, which explores the destructive personality of Edwin Borsheim, the lead singer of the defunct band Kettle Cadaver. The trailer gives a compelling look into an isolated human being who once attempted to find solace in shock rock, and now lives out his days alone. There are hints at several charges leveled again Borsheim, as well as a crying mom.
Equally interesting is that this documentary comes from a 19-year-old first-time filmmaker, Jai Love.
Dead Hands Dig Deep makes its world premiere at Slamdance on Friday, January 22 at 7pm, with an encore screening on Wednesday, January 27 at 10:15 pm.
The official synopsis:
Thirty-eight year old Edwin Borsheim of the band Kettle Cadaver, was once known for his bizarre stage antics and brutal self-mutilation. Now, years after the bands demise, Borsheim has fallen in to complete seclusion on his acre of land in which he is surrounded by many of the horrible things he has created.
As Edwin spirals further in to a hole of drug abuse and self destruction, those closest to Borsheim dissect his mental complexes as he himself reflects on his dark past. Although Borsheim finds himself trapped in his own home, he just may be saved by human interaction.
