CANADA NOW: THE BEST NEW FILMS FROM CANADA
Double Feature! Directors Bruce McDonald and Kevan Funk In Person!
This Canada Now double feature includes two Los Angeles premieres with both directors in person. Bruce McDonald's WEIRDOS is an offbeat and endearing coming-of-age story set in Nova Scotia during 1976, while Kevan Funk’s HELLO DESTROYER is an elegant film about the inelegant realities of being a hockey enforcer and literally fighting one’s way to the big leagues.
