Repressed Cinema: Modus Operandi

Repressed Cinema presents Frankie Latina's MODUS OPERANDI (2009) + a 16mm preshow short subject!

A film that could only be made in Milwaukee, where life is CHEAP! Starring Danny Trejo (MACHETE) and Mark Borchardt (AMERICAN MOVIE), MODUS OPERANDI is a revenge tale about a desperate C.I.A. agent on a mission to find the man who murdered his wife. Two briefcases with mysterious contents are stolen from top Presidential candidate Squire Parks, setting off a deadly series of double-crosses and betrayals. Desperate warring factions of subterranean organizations will stop at nothing to gain possession of the sensitive material. A covert branch of the CIA calls on notorious Black Ops agent Stanley Cashay, who has been barely existing in a semi-comatose twilight since the murder of his wife. Shot on Super 8mm film and video over the course of four years, MODUS OPERANDI is a poor man's James Bond, with plenty of thought and creativity on a shoestring budget. Not for the squeamish!

From the Repressed Archive, a 16mm short subject will precede the film complimenting the flavor of the feature...
