Kino Lorber Releases the Fantasy-Adventure and Award-Winning Cult Festival Hit 'Patch Town', a film by Craig Goodwill


Coming to DVD August 11th packed with special features including an interview with the director, behind-the-scenes featurette, the original award-winning short film that inspired the feature, and more!

Kino Lorber announces the release of Craig Goodwill's fantasy-adventure Patch Town, coming to DVD August 11th with a SRP of $29.95 and packed with bonus features including a behind-the-scenes featurette, casting sessions, animatic, outtakes, the trailer, an interview with the director, and "Patch Town", the award-winning short film that inspired the feature.

A hit at festivals, Patch Town won the Best Feature Award at Canadian Film Fest, and was an Official Selection of Fantasia-fest and the Moscow International Film Festival. Kino Lorber released Patch Town theatrically, opening in New York earlier in 2015.

In Patch Town's dark modern fairy tale, newborn babies are plucked from cabbage patches, turned into plastic dolls, and sold as playthings in a nightmarish, oppressive society. Jon (Rob Ramsay), a discontented factory worker slaving away on a baby-harvesting production line, uncovers a secret from his past that sends him searching for his long-lost mother (Zoie Palmer). As Jon embarks on his journey with his loving wife Mary (Stephanie Pitsiladis), the sinister Child Catcher (Julian Richings) and his diminutive beet-munching henchman (Ken Hall) throw a wrench into his plans.

An eye-popping fantasy-adventure, quirky comedy, and rousing musical rolled into one, Patch Town"combines Soviet-era iconography, Eastern European folklore and Western consumer-culture critique with a dash of song and dance" (Peter Debruge, Variety).
