Star Robot: Back to the Markus

Fri, May 25 / 9:15 pm
Directed by Greg Roth
2015, Canada, 100 min

Join us for a very special evening of sci-fi B-movie madness as we celebrate the work of local independent filmmaker Greg Roth of Star Robot fame. Greg has been a figure of legend and cult status in Winnipeg for decades, first as a musical composer of such lost hits as Jet Ride and This Little Town under the recording name Mizalites, then as architect of the Star Robot universe, which has grown to include an epic written tome, several films, and endless million dollar dreams.

Greg’s exact legacy has been difficult to pin down; he seems to have appeared suddenly in the early 2000s from a different planet – perhaps that of Star Robot – with a fully realized vision for his world of interplanetary robot hijinks. The epitome of independent – Greg writes, directs, shoots, distributes, and creates the effects (both “digital” and practical) for his films – he belongs to a long line of handmade Winnipeg filmmakers who eschew the traditional modes of production and distribution in favour of their own idiosyncratic brand of filmmaking. Come explore Greg’s world with us as we watch Star Robot: Back to the Markus, and host the filmmaker himself in what will undoubtedly be an illuminating and unprecedented peek in to the singular mind of Greg Roth.
