NEW HAVEN, CT (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — News of Daniel Edwards’ nude sculpture of Britney Spears coincides with Goodnight Film’s release of a quirky short documentary featuring his previous controversial work, the “death mask” of Ted Williams’ cryogenically preserved head. The film, titled THE SEVERAL SEVERED HEADS OF DANIEL EDWARDS, features candid interviews with the controversial artist and reveals the motivations behind his work. It is currently available for free download on, the online film festival founded by actor Kevin Spacey. The film is also located on iTunes as a Podcast under the search, “Daniel Edwards.”

The unconventional documentary, revealing latent macabre memories from Edwards’ childhood – produced and directed by former Microsoft developer A.D. Calvo – has proven too challenging for inclusion by film festivals such as Sundance and Cannes. “We’ve found the perfect home for the film at TriggerStreet,” says filmmaker, Calvo. “The accessibility provided by digital video, via broadband, is a major step in the democratization of the film industry,” added Calvo.

A.D. Calvo’s short documentary explores Edwards’ gruesome influences and the pop-culture sensibilities that ultimately led to his creation of the Britney Spears piece. “Daniel Edwards is the new Andy Warhol, albeit a bit more twisted,” laughs Calvo.

Calvo calls his latest film, NINE LIVES, a Buddhist ghost story. The film was inspired by the works of M. Night Shyamalan. It features Michael Knowles (Law and Order, Sex and the City), and will premiere in New York City near the end of April.
