Porzingods and Men

By now, perhaps you’ve seen the short film “Porzingod,” which debuted at the Tribeca Film Festival recently. It’s a 3+ minute prayer to the gods of the New York Knickerbockers, conducted by John Leguizamo and Adam Mucci. The film was written and directed by Conor Byrne, and produced by Tyler Byrne for Brudder Films. You’ve been there. I’ve been there. It’s part of who we are. Enjoy and give praise to the most high….Kristaps Porzingod.
