Director John Paizs will be in attendance at this screening.

Presented by Matchbox Cineclub. Sitcom noir, or maybe Tex Avery splatter. Steven desperately wants to be a “colour crime movie writer”, but he can only write beginnings and endings - until an adoring fan befriends him. Through a series of adventures - and the intervention of the evil Dr Jolly - he finds the strength to go on. This is a rare opportunity to see John Paizs’ beloved and consummately Canadian cult classic, long unavailable in the UK. Screening is preceded by Springtime for Greenland (John Paizs, 1981) 25m.
