LORD JONES IS DEAD - Vancouver Premiere
Thu, 21 July 2016, 6:00 PM – 9:30 PM PDT
Come join us for the premiere of Lord Jones is Dead, a new South African/Canadian feature satirical comedy that follows rival newspaper journalists Samuel (Chad Krowchuk, Man of Steel), Vincent (Daniel Janks, Ali) and Clive (Jonathan Pienaar, Blood Diamond) staked out on a dead-end assignment who have to take matters in their own hands to get a story.
Set in the cutthroat world of the Johannesburg newspaper wars, Lord Jones is Dead dishes up a spicy polemic on the journalistic profession, introducing the audience to an ecosystem of scavenging print urchins and the decline of an industry without once leaving the suburban street where it's set.
Co-directors Austin Andrews and Andrew Holmes and lead actor Chad Krowchuk will be on hand to present the film, with a Q&A to follow the screening. Admission is by donation, with all proceeds going to Canadian Journalists for Free Expression.
