Description

Join us for another SMPIA Screening Series evening – a showcase of new Saskatchewan film and television.

We will be screening
A FOCUSED PORTRAIT OF HARTLEY SMITH, GREG ALLEN’S SUPERNATURAL SASQUATCH, and I LIVED WITH A KILLER.

Admission is free. A Q&A with the filmmakers will follow each film.



GREG ALLEN’S SUPERNATURAL SASQUATCH (3:30)
The tale of a melancholic, interdimensional bigfoot and the artist who created him.
Regina artist Greg Allen's preoccupation with the Sasquatch goes back to his youth, when he vividly remembers seeing the notorious Patterson-Gimlin film for the first time on television. Now, Allen's paintbrush is hard at work, delicately applying thin strands of yellow and purple paint to the broad shoulders of his muse (and creation), the Supernatural Sasquatch.

Director/Producer
Jeremy Ratzlaff is a self-taught filmmaker home grown on the Prairies. Favorite projects include the profiling of wonderfully creative individuals pursuing their craft in the middle of nowhere.


I LIVED WITH A KILLER (10:30)
Their lives are portrayed in movies, TV shows and books and their shocking acts are woven into the fabric of scary stories about real monsters in the world. But what happens when the monster is someone you live with and love? We will feature a series excerpt about one of New York’s most powerful mobsters, Sammy 'The Bull' Gravano and hear from his daughter Karen.
