Crispin Hellion Glover’s Melbourne Tour.
Hand in Glover: Crispin Glover and MUFF unite at The End of the World in 2012!
Our theme at MUFF 13 is Mavericks. And what better global maverick to kick off a pre-MUFF
Special Event Screening than Mr. Crispin Glover? Iconoclast, actor, director, media personality,
intellectual, writer, artist – genius even. A true Renaissance Man in the classical sense that we
love and want more of. Crispin Glover is truly unique and is coming back to Melbourne in July
2012. Presented by MUFF – the Melbourne Underground Film Festival and Palace Cinemas, he’s
screening his latest two amazing self-directed films. They are an absolute must see live, as unlike
most other films they won’t be available on DVD or the internet.
Crispin Glover is coming. In the flesh. With two unique films. And two slide shows. Crispin Hellion
Glover performs a one hour dramatic narration of eight different profusely illustrated books. The
images from the books are projected behind Mr. Glover during his performance. Basically
he’s just a very talented man.

It is Fine! Everything Is Fine
Synopsis: It Is Fine! EVERYTHING IS FINE goes into uncharted cinematic territory with screenwriter
Steven C. Stewart starring in this semi-autobiographical, psycho-sexual, tale about a man with
severe cerebral palsy and a fetish for girls with long hair. Part horror film, part exploitation picture
and part documentary of a man who cannot express his sexuality in the way he desires, (due to his
physical condition), this fantastical and often humorous tale is told completely from Stewart’s actual
point of view – that of someone who has lived for years watching people do things he will never
be able to do. Here, Stewart’s character is something of a lady killer, seducing a troubled, recently
divorced mother (Margit Carstensen), her teenage daughter and any number of other ladies he
encounters along the way. According to Crispin Glover, Stewart “wanted to show that handicapped
people are human, sexual and can be horrible. He also states that “It is Fine! EVERYTHING IS
FINE. will probably be the best film he has anything to do with in his entire career. Crispin Glover
and his co-director David Brothers wanted to bring Stewart’s story to the screen.
WHAT IS IT?
Synopsis: Known for creating many memorable, incredibly quirky characters onscreen as an actor,
Glover’s first effort as a director will not disappoint fans of his offbeat sensibilities and eccentric
taste. Featuring a cast largely comprised of actors with Down’s Syndrome, the film is not about
Down’s Syndrome. Glover describes it as “Being the adventures of a young man whose principal
interests are snails, salt, a pipe and how to get home as tormented by an hubristic racist inner
psyche.” In addition to writing and directing WHAT IS IT?, Glover also appears in the film as an actor
in the role of “Dueling Demi-God Auteur and The young man’s inner psyche.” Actress Fairuza Balk
voices one of the snails.
“Crispin Hellion Glover, auteur, is a force to be reckoned with.”
Laura Kern, The New York Times
“Glover…puts impenetrably odd and tender poetry on the screen.”
Bill Stamets, The Chicago Sun-Times
