Meticulously adapted from David Morrell's novel First Blood, which introduced the world to a kid named Rambo waging a one-man war against a sheriff and small town, FLOODING WITH LOVE FOR THE KID is in itself a one-man cinematic war. Shot entirely for $96 in a 220 square foot studio apartment in Manhattan, it was adapted, directed, filmed, acted, designed, and edited by one man. Actor and filmmaker Zachary Oberzan, performing all two dozen characters himself, created this monumental, transgressive film as a testament to the animal ingenuity and triumphant spirit of the lone artist with no money, no resources, no nothing. A wild, violent, compassionate ride through the back hills and caves of Kentucky, this film and its maker embrace their harsh limitations, and in doing so, ultimately transcend them. As Rambo and Sheriff Teasle hunt each other in the woods, the audience suddenly redefines the very nature of suspension of disbelief and watches a powerful and poignant drama unfold before them. How and why this story is told is a statement far larger than any story itself. This film asks the questions, "What do you need to make a great film? How much money, how many actors, how much space?" An action-filled drama, FLOODING WITH LOVE FOR THE KID destroys all previous notions of low-budget filmmaking with a determination lifted from Rambo's own infuriated rampage. www.zacharyoberzan.com
