"The Unlikely Story of OMG/HaHaHa"

Written by Chris McCoy -"The Intruder" Blog Writer

"It's the Titanic of Indie Memphis." That's what film critic Elvis Mitchell called Morgan Jon Fox'sOMG/HAHAHA as he awarded it yet another of the six prizes the film won at the 2008 edition of Indie Memphis. Since then, the film has been wowing audiencesand juries on two continents, winning the Reeling 2008 festival in Chicago and inviting comparisons to Larry Clark's groundbreaking 1995 film Kids from critics in London, where OMG/HAHAHA is currently screening at the Bradford International Film Festival. "It's funny, because when I finished it, I thought it would be a rinky-dink little project," Fox says. "I thought, 'I'm going to enjoy this, and it's going to be fun, but it's a big, experimental mess that's not going to be well received at all.'"
