Are You Confused?

If you’re in the NYC area, you may have seen these bizarre ads for “Future Diarrhea” around.  It’s confusing people all over the internet.  Is this a real product, or covert advertising for Adult Swim’s “The Heart, She Holler,” which shot here at BFP, and premieres at 12:30am on Sept. 10? 

Director Mike Cahill’s I Origins, starring Michael Pitt and Stephen Yeun, has been all over the place; it premiered at Sundance and had a high-profile theatrical run.  A good bit of the principal photography took place on location in India, but they shot their stage portions right here in NYC, in our Seltzer Room Studio 3!

BEHIND THE WHITE WALLS

Our sister company, BFP Creative, which has been busy curating and presenting excellent art shows in our Temporary Storage galleries, across the street from our Nut Roaster and Seltzer Room stages, presents “BEHIND WHITE WALLS.”  Please join us for the May 15th opening!
