Dave Made a Maze
ALT | Vancity Theatre Screening
There’s thinking outside the box, and then there’s physically getting out of the box - that’s the part Dave is struggling with after a weekend wasted constructing a labyrinth out of cardboard in his living room. See, Dave built his maze from within, and now he’s trapped. Girlfriend Annie rounds up some friends to mount a rescue operation - despite Dave’s dire warnings of boobytraps and pitfalls. Still, they are surprised to find the labyrinth is much bigger on the inside than it looked in Dave and Annie’s apartment. In fact it’s so big there’s no guarantee they will ever get out again. Not with that Minotaur on the loose…
Winner of the Audience Award at the Slamdance Festival, this deliriously inventive comedy shows just how creative you can get with no money but endless supplies of cardboard. Debut writer-director Bill Watterson has made a laugh-out-loud action thriller reminiscent of Aliens - if Aliens had been sponsored by Staples.
