The man behind “Brass Eye” and “Nathan Barley,” Chris Morris, is on a Q&A tour of the United States promoting his film “Four Lions” up until the film’s release on November 5, 2010. The cinematic tour stops include Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Washington DC, Boston and New York City. From the official press release:
Drafthouse Films is proud to bring famed UK satirist Chris Morris to the United States for a rare series of public Q&As following screenings of his hilarious terrorism comedy Four Lions. Morris will be visiting Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Washington DC, Boston and New York City, screening the Sundance and SXSW hit that critics are calling ‘funny,*’ ‘funny**’ and ‘funny.***’
Tagging along will be Devin Faraci, editor-in-chief of the Alamo Drafthouse’s new nerd lifestyle site, Badass Digest. Devin will be keeping a video diary from the road, sharing his adventures with readers of Badass Digest, as well as documenting the Q&As. ‘I’ve been a big fan of Chris Morris since his days on TV, with the incredible show Brass Eye,’ says Faraci. ‘So it’ll be exciting and more than a little intimidating to travel with him cross country.’
