Stanleyville – Ottawa Premiere the Week of May 13!
Directors Guild Of Canada: Outstanding Achievement in Picture Editing nominee!
A dissatisfied woman abandons her career and her family when she gets the chance to compete in a bizarre and dangerously flawed contest. The prize: a brand new habanero-orange compact SUV.
From Sundance Film Festival award winning, and 2x TIFF nominated director Maxwell McCabe-Lokos!
“McCabe-Lokos is THE Canadian filmmaker to watch very closely…unrivaled compositional flair, jaw-dropping cinematography, deeply fun and witty dialogue, and quirky characters galore…a bewitching puzzle, dotted with surprises and clues, which will keep you in suspense until the end.” (Fantasia Film Festival)
“there’s an ambition here that’s admirable and engaging” (RogerEbert.com)
“This quirky comedy is a mash-up of Squid Game and Survivor, with a delightfully surrealist, avant-garde energy…It’s nonsensical, idiosyncratic, awfully funny, and truly one of a kind.” (Screen Zealots)
“it heads straight first into proudly weird territory in the best way possible…almost inexplicably enthralling, while still remaining very, very funny. One of the year’s hidden treasures, this is not to be missed.” (Alliance Of Women Film Journalists)
*Please take note that doors open 30 minutes before showtimes. We encourage people to arrive early. We have a small box office, a small candy bar, and a single-screen cinema, meaning that when most of an audience shows up a few minutes before showtime, it causes a bottleneck. If possible, we appreciate you arriving a little bit early to pick out your seat and get your popcorn. Thanks for your help!
