THUNDER BAY – Apple Wagon Films will be premiering two new short films: Dog Eat Dog and A Guiding Hand, both of which were produced in Thunder Bay by writer / director Curtis Jensen.
The screening – on Tuesday, May 25, 2010, at 7:00 pm – will take place at the Paramount Theatre, which is located at 24 Court Street South. Admission is free, but donations would be appreciated.
The premiere will also showcase several other projects developed by Apple Wagon Films and feature live music performed by Jean-Paul De Roover, who scored both Dog Eat Dog and A Guiding Hand.
Immediately following the screenings, writer / director Curtis Jensen will be in attendance to field any questions posed by the audience. Curtis is a local filmmaker who has had one dream and one dream alone for most of his life: to make exciting, engaging and successful films within Canada. With the completion of Dog Eat Dog and A Guiding Hand, Curtis is edging closer to realizing that dream.
Dog Eat Dog, which was co-financed by Bravo!FACT, follows two hit men who are hired by a Mafioso to take out his neighbour’s dog, which is as cute as it is vicious. The film stars Nicholas Palinka, Rodney Dwira and Philip Contardo.
A Guiding Hand, which was financed by the Ontario Arts Council, follows Alex, a junior league baseball player, who is concerned about his hospitalized and dying grandfather. Unable to keep his mind in the game, Alex leaves the dug out, only to be greeted by his miraculously healthy grandfather, who gives Alex a life-altering gift. The film stars Aaron Tocheri, Philip Contardo and Kim Hansen.
