The TromaDance Film Festival is returning to Asbury Park – April 22nd and 23rd at the Showroom Theater.  In this podcast, Christopher Benincasa talks with the man behind the festival, Lloyd Kaufman.  Kaufman is perhaps best known for introducing us to The Toxic Avenger – a mutant super-hero character he created that has come to symbolize independent, do-it-yourself filmmaking – just the right mascot for a festival like TromaDance.
