From the press release:
LOS ANGELES (May 2, 2018) – Srdjan Spasojevic’s 2010 horror-thriller A Serbian Film has been vilified by “mainstream” critics and banned by festival directors worldwide. It’s also been called “great” by legendary director William Friedkin (The Exorcist) and is beloved by diehard horror fans. Truly polarizing, one thing is certain: A Serbian Film is perhaps the most controversial film of all time. Now, Unearthed Films and A Serbian Film director Srdjan Spasojevic team up to bring fans of the iconic film the ultimate fan experience, A SERBIAN FILM EXHIBITION. Coming soon to terrorize Los Angeles from Friday, May 18 – Sunday, May 20, the three-day exhibition features a one-time screening of the rare, Uncut version of the film, an after-party hosted by Spasojevic, and a gallery exhibit where all the props will be on full display and available for purchase during a seven-day online-only auction and storyboard sale on eBay.
