Join us for a screening of this VIFF double prize-winning documentary followed by a panel discussion on food waste and other issues raised in the movie featuring producer Jen Rustemeyer and special guests.
Shot in Alberta, this fantasy/horror epic concerns the monsters of Midian, and the hero (Craig Sheffer) and villain (David Cronenberg) who are searching for them before the creatures’ existence and abilities are exploited by humanity. Nightbreed now gets an extended cut that has creator Clive Barker’s enthusiastic support. It’s 20 minutes longer but features 40 mins of new or revised footage.
“A rip-roaring monster flick, all the stops out and pumping with imagination."
John Stanley, Creature Features
Bud Gordon (Corey Stoll - from House of Cards and Midnight in Paris) once had it all—a nice apartment, fame, public love and admiration—but a quick jab to the chin wiped that slate. Now living in a dingy studio with no business, no fans and no purpose except to help train an up-and-coming boxer. Noah Buschel writes and directs Glass Chin with a distinctive, vibrant style that channels pulp film noir into something both familiar and strange.
"Buschel may be mining classic B-movie territory, but between his script and Stoll’s performance, Glass Chin finds fresh humanity in a seemingly exhausted genre." Peter Debruge, Variety
"Buschel’s micro-noir has a rare and potent sense of menace […] viscerally direct and spontaneous, like that last, swift jab that puts an opponent on the mat." Chris Cabin, Slant
"In a starring turn of suppressed despondence and frustration, the charismatic Stoll makes a strong bid for earning his own shot at superstardom." Nick Schager, Village Voice
