The award-winning independent LA filmmaker Barry Levy’s first foray into animation, Division Denim, makes it’s World Premiere at The Zero Film Festival in Los Angeles, Thursday, December 04, Division Denim is a highly controversial movie that uses humor to expose child labor issues. Levy said recently, “Division Denim is a cartoon comedy that sucks you in with its slick groove, but then pulls back the curtain behind our high-end-low-priced coolness, and exposes its boney ribs and scrawny underpaid butt.” "If you can imagine a poor, downtrodden kid in a third world country sweating over a sewing machine making some of our cheap clothes, then picture this. Imagine that he is able to crash the shooting location for that clothing’s company’s latest rockin’ celebrity commercial. Would he ask for an autograph? Bow down before us? Or blow off a little steam kick-ass ninja style? That's where the movie goes, and it does not hold back!" Barry admits that “This isn’t a magic wand. It won't fix anything overnight. But it will start some conversations, maybe some arguments, and it may be dark but it’s FUN!.” Division Denim screens as part of The Zero Film Festival on Thursday, Dec. 04 at 1 pm at The Downtown Independent Theatre, 251 S. Main St., (between W. 2nd & W 3rd St.) in downtown LA. There is only one screening and the director will be in attendance, and taking questions afterwards.
