"Mind of the Demon," documentary about motocross legend Larry "Link" Linkogle, screens free this Friday!


Motocross maniacs, metal heads and movie freaks should commingle Friday evening in head-bangin’ bliss at the Piazza at Schmidt’s in Northern Liberties, as the Philadelphia Underground Film Forum – better known as PUFF (but not really that well known at all) -- presents an outdoor screening of  Mind of the Demon: The Larry Linkogle Story.

Fresh from its Slamdance Festival win in the documentary category, Mind of the  Demon – narrated by Motorhead’s Lemmy Kilmister – tells the twisted tale of freestyle motocross icon Larry “Link” Linkogle, from his teenage stardom as a pioneer of  daredevil dirt-biking to his descent into painkillers, booze, thuggery and epic indifference. Talking heads include extreme sports stars Travis Pastrana (world record for longest rally car jump), Carey Hart, Nate Adams, Jeremy McGrath, Nathan Fletcher, Christian Fletcher, Riki Rachtman, Seth Enslow and Jeff Emig. Music comes by way of Circle Jerks, Black Flag, Suicidal Tendencies and Motorhead.
Linkogle himself, and Mind of the Demon director Adam Barker, will be on hand for the Philadelphia premiere, which starts at 5 p.m. and is FREE to all comers. The film will be shown on the Piazza’s 26-foot by 16-fot Hi-Def LED screen.
And if you miss the screening, Mind of the Demon moves over to the PUFF Movie House, 725 N. 4th Street, Saturday, April 3 through Thursday, April 8. For information on this and other PUFF events, call 215-592-1242, or 267-303-9388, or follow on Facebook: PUFF Movie House.
