After volunteering for Troma at the Cannes film festival, I can now fully appreciate how difficult it is to make your voice heard at a film festival such as Cannes. The fact that Troma is relentless and shows up every year and makes every attempt possible to disrupt the goings on is admirable. It is certainly hard work, and by the end everyone is tired and frustrated, but Troma is persistent. This documentary is brutally honest, and is absolutely wonderful. The volunteers are enthusiastic, which is necessary. The fact that the volunteers are not paid, and must pay for their own flights and food shows that they themselves are doing it because they love Troma. How many major companies have that sort of fan base? True, they harass everyone and cause tons of trouble, but they are doing it for something they truly love. Troma gets noticed because of the volunteers. By having people pay attention to Troma, more attention is paid to independent cinema. Down with Hollywood! The truth is, you may not like Troma, but you will never forget Troma.
