Friday, 7/10 is the LAST DAY to order the streaming version of Spider Mites Of Jesus: The Dirtwoman Documentary.
After Friday, it will only be available on DVD until Ariztical Entertainment releases the newly-edited streaming version (at least 2 months).
BTW, that’s me as Dirtwoman for Halloween in the 80s (I have no idea who’s in the gorilla mask). It never made it into the doc, so it’s an exclusive look to echo this final offer.
THE DIRTWOMAN DOCUMENTARY has signed an exclusive distribution deal with Ariztical Entertainment, one of the leading names in quality LGBT and independent films that challenge contemporary cultural boundaries.
Michael Jack Shoel, President of Ariztical noted; “We love Dirtwoman! With his uncanny resemblance to Divine and his own legendary experience with “Sh#t,” he is the embodiment of entertaining, empathetic cultural assassination.” About this new collaboration, Dirtwoman producer Jerry Williams says, “I’m excited to work with Ariztical’s experience and expertise to spread the love for this unique individual.”
Ariztical is known for the production and worldwide distribution of the Eating Out film franchise comedy series along with over 150 independent films available internationally on television, VOD, DVD and Ariztical.com and ArizticalNow.com. Shoel concludes, “We’ve just inked the deal. Now the fun starts. We look forward to helping the rest of the world appreciate the exceptional character that is Dirtwoman.”
For anyone who might have seen the documentary in Richmond or at the film festivals, the original title (Spider Mites of Jesus) has been streamlined for more readily accessible on-line recognition.
IMPORTANT! The streaming version will only be available thru July 10.
After that, streaming will released by Ariztical.
Dirtwoman fans are familiar with Donnie’s most familiar greeting!
In support of HEALTH BRIGADE’s efforts to serve their clients during COVID-19, take a “dollah” off DVD/streaming of SPIDER MITES OF JESUS: THE DIRTWOMAN DOCUMENTARY and TVJerry will match each dollar with a $10 contribution (for a limited time).

Speaking of Cville: If you’d like to enjoy it with an audience (always the most fun) the FINAL PUBLIC SCREENING will be:

Coming full circle, this is the theatre where it first premiered at the 2018 Virginia Film Festival. I’ll be there for Q&A and to sell early copies of the DVD.
