Remember when Chewbacca allegedly attacked Marilyn Monroe? If you have ever driven past Mann's Chinese theater, you have seen the assortment of costumed characters posing with tourists. The Reinactors, Dave Markey's documentary that follows the strange bunch who haunt Mann's, has just been chosen for the 2008 Rotterdam Film Festival.

The 37th edition of the International Film Festival Rotterdam (23 January to 3 February 2008) is being realised under the leadership of director Rutger Wolfson. He is focusing on Free Radicals: film makers and artists who idiosyncratically and energetically follow their own course. -International Film Festival Rotterdam website

The showing in Rotterdam will be the first public screening of the film. Up until now, only friends and participants have been able to view the film. Check out video of the private local screening above.
