Independent Film Week: DOWNTIME

SAT, NOV 29 / 9 pm
Dir. Greg Hanec | Canada 1985 | 66min. | 16mm

Life in Winnipeg is grim, grimy and gruesome. An austere film with touches of offbeat humour. Dark and brooding it paints a dismal picture of life for young people out on their own. The actors and words of its characters—strangers thrust into unexpected intimacy—are funny, unnerving and insightful.

—————————

Greg Hanec has been involved with film and video in Winnipeg for more than two decades. In the 1980s, he made three short films and two feature-length films, one of which, Downtime ’84, was accepted into the Berlin Film Festival. Since then, he has done seven experimental films and is completing his next feature, Think at Night. He collaborated with Campbell Martin on a series of guerilla projections of film loops on trains, billboards, and buildings. His loops and videos have also been a part of numerous raves, and performances of such bands as The Absent Sound, Vav Jungle, National Monument, and his own musical projects, Suture and Philia.
