Gravity, Nebraska, 12 Years a Slave… CLASS OF NUKE EM HIGH?!

We kicked off 2014 to premiering Troma’s ‘Return to Nuke ‘Em High Vol. 1’ at the Museum  of Modern Art.    Yup! The MoMA selected ‘Return to Nuke Em High’ for it’s CONTENDERS series, a selection of films the museum’s film department determines to be “a contender for lasting historical significance.” That’s right folks, there we were, a Troma film, directed by dad, Lloyd Kaufman, sandwiched in between ‘Gravity’ ’12 Years a Slave’, ‘Blue is The Warmest Color’ and ‘Nebraska’  I don’t think Alfonso Cuaron’s screening ended with a live Bollywood Dance…
