After screening Sean Dunne’s latest film American Juggalo on Thursday, we bring your attention to his hit short from last year, an eye-popping jaw-dropping doc about a bowling hustler.

THE BOWLER (Sean Dunne | NYC | 14 min.)
Rocky Salemmo makes his living as a bowling alley hustler. It’s not for the money. It’s about the feeling of winning. Or so he says in this colorfully candid profile, in which Rocky talks a mile a millisecond about booze, “broads” and the bowling balls he’s left behind while climbing out windows to duck bet collectors. He’s like a Scorsese character, come to life.

Look out for Sean’s new feature on Kickstarter soon.
