We recently had the chance to chat with our friend Ronnie Rivera, AKA Bleeding Palm
, the creative mastermind behind the upcoming documentary Adventures of Christopher Bosh in the Multiverse
. The film will be one of many screened at the Bosh Film Festival
-- an offshoot of the Borscht Film Festival
-- centered around the one and only Miami Heat enigma Chris Bosh. The screening takes place at the Miami Art Museum on December 14.
In our conversation, we discussed the whereabouts of Limp Bizkit guitarist Wes Borland, Rivera's upcoming projects, and Chris Bosh's actual email.
New Times: All right, so let's get down to just basics. What is the Bosh Film Festival, for people who don't know?
And do the videos have to be Bosh-oriented? Or is it free format?
It's anything goes. Oh, and Yung Jake
is going to perform.
Sweet. So what is it about Chris Bosh that drew you to make a short film about him? And do you think any other player on the Heat could have easily been the subject? Mike MIller seems to be a good contender.
I was commissioned by Chris Bosh to make this movie. I only did it cause they promised to read my movie script. It's called I Love You, Manatee. Not set on the title yet. I have a great script ready for an underwater romantic comedy about manatees set during the Cuban missile crisis off the shores of Cuba. It's a musical.
Whoa. So Chris Bosh sought you out to make this?
Yes, he did. I received an email from firstname.lastname@example.org asking me to make a movie. I can't imagine anybody ever lying on the internet.
Course not. Seems legit. Has he seen the progress of the film yet?
Yeah, he didn't like it too much. That's when Borscht picked up the film.
What is it about the movie he didn't like?
He didn't like the way he was portrayed. He didn't know the film would include elements from his time before he came to this universe. Things have happened in his past that he's still dealing with. The movie is kind of a documentary.
