What Had Happened Was podcast: Henrique Couto, the ‘weird’ filmmaker behind the Salvador Dali-ish moustache

The completely sober dude with the Hawaiian shirt and Salvador Dali moustache is proving that you can’t judge a book by its cover through his crazy movies.

What Had Happened Was podcast host Amelia Robinson sat down with Dayton-based independent filmmaker Henrique Couto (Henflix.com) for the podcast’s latest episode. 

The high school dropout with hustle in his blood  has a slew of comedies, horrors and other films under his belt including “Marty Jenkins and the Vampire Bitches,” “A Bulldog for Christmas,” and the feminist western “Calamity Jane's Revenge.”
