About a month ago, I wrote a profile on Vancouver-based actor April Telek, fresh off the heels of winning the Leo Award for Best Actress for her performance in the feature film Amazon Falls, directed by Vancouver-based Katrin Bowen.
I just found out that the critically-acclaimed film will be playing at the Denman Cinemas this Friday, July 29, 2011. Starting at 7:00pm, it’s part of a double-header and will be followed by A Wake, directed by Penelope Buitenhuis, which will start at 9:30pm.
Katrin Bowen’s Amazon Falls is a gritty story about a faded B-movie actress who refuses to give up her dream of being a star in a business that seems to punish virtue more than vice.
Penelope Buitenhuis’ A Wake is a mystery about a troupe of actors who reunite for the wake of their eccentric theatre director (Nicholas Campbell). But when all hell breaks loose over the weekend, all secrets and lies are exposed.
The Denman Cinemas are located at 1030 Denman at Comox in downtown Vancouver’s West End. Follow them on Twitter @DenmanCinemas or on Facebook for show information. Admission is just $7.95 for adults every day except Tuesday when it’s just $5.95.
