2016, Canada, 81 min

Opening night introduced by director John Barnard.

A hit at the recent Whistler Film Festival, this Winnipeg feature is the story of Claire, a suburban mother who is restless and wants to escape her home life. She indulges in some good-natured hedonistic debauchery and receives word from her child that he is abandoning her as his mother. To win back his affection, she decides to carry a small rock half way around the world to its place of origin on a Mediterranean island. Along the way, she goes to work in a strange strip club on the edge of civilization where exotic dancers perform in an otherworldly space for abandoned souls just like her. Shot on location in Manitoba and Menorca, Balearic Islands, this beautifully photographed story features a great performance from lead actress Tammy Gillis and a largely Winnipeg cast.

Reviews

Seriously provocative...Menorca somehow gets under your skin.
