Spotlight on homegrown cinema
| 82 minutes | 2018
Making a first film can be akin to a calling. Rene starts to realize that as she hamfistedly tries to finish her thesis project. She takes as her subject seven girls who flunk out of high school and decide they might as well take a stab at enrolling in the Canadian army. The line between fiction and reality becomes a crazy blur in the latest feature from the team behind Amy George, who this time offer up a mischievous meditation on the filmmaker’s craft and thwarted artistic ambitions. Spice it up! is an offbeat cinematic oddity, firmly in the indie camp and brimming with wicked humour.Q&A with the cast and crew on October 5th
