CINEMA LOUNGE: THE ADVENTURE OF FAUSTUS BIDGOOD

SAT, FEB 27 / 4 pm
Dirs. Mike & Andy Jones
1986 | Canada | 110 min

Ten years in the making, Faustus Bidgood is probably the most important independent feature ever to come out of Newfoundland. Faustus Bidgood is polyester clad milquetoast functionary in the provincial department of education who in alternating fantasies imagines the gory murder of his tormenting co-workers and dreams himself President of the People’s Republic of Newfoundland.Featuring an all star cast of actors from the East Coast, this film is unlike any other produced in Canada.It shows the epic struggle for an independent Newfoundland and a tall tale about one man’s increasingly precarious world view of reality.
