American Worms: Mister Organ Poster Giveaway
I have 5 limited edition signed Mister Organ posters to give away!
Update, Feb 10: The 5 winners have been contacted via email!
New Zealand artist Jess Johnson created some unique posters for the final US cinema showing of Mister Organ that we had in Roswell, New Mexico last year.
I kept five of them, and Jess and I have signed them.
If you’re a paid up Webworm reader and live in America, and want to go in the draw to win one, just leave a comment below and I’ll randomly select five of you by the end of next week. I’ll email you for your details, and send them out.
If you hear from me by the weekend of Feb 10th — you were picked!
If you don’t — then you weren’t (sorry!!)
If you’re not in America, I apologise — international shipping at the moment for poster tubes is bonkers. But also — I have some fun Webworm stuff coming that will be available worldwide. Soon.
As for the doc — Mister Organ is out on Netflix in America/NZ/Australia now — here is an interesting read from Polygon that came out today:
That, and many other things about Mister Organ, may shift sympathies away from Farrier. But they never shift toward Organ himself, who — much like the gradually revealed subject of Tickled — seems like a monstrous person best kept at a distance. Farrier doesn’t have that luxury. In both of these movies, he takes a lot of risks — narrative ones, in terms of creating documentaries with a distinctive personality and approach that’s unlike anyone else currently making docs, and personal ones, in terms of angering people whose histories show they have dangerous ways of lashing out.
I think it’s a pretty good read on the documentary — a doc that some people hate (here are some 1/2 star reviews on Letterboxd):
And some people like (again, Letterboxd):
Regardless, I had a really great time showing Mister Organ for the final time on a big screen at the site of the alleged 1947 UFO crash.
Okay — comment below if you live in America and want to enter this Wormy’ little competition!
PS — for anyone new to Webworn/Mister Organ, here is a detailed piece about what happened after the film was released:
