First Weekend Club's NURSE.FIGHTER.BOY Party
While Superbowl parties dominated last Sunday afternoon, I took in a party of a different sort at The Drake Hotel Underground, thrown by First Weekend Club.
The film is an urban love story directed by Toronto filmmaker Charles Officer and featuring actor Clark Johnson and Karen LeBlanc. It's a quiet, enchanting little film that slowly draws you into its magic world of Jude, Silence and Ciel, the three characters that also make up movie's title.
An enlightening Q&A followed the film, featuring Officer and writer/producer Ingrid Veninger. Officer spoke about his desire to "inject some real heart and soul in film," which was clearly evident in this, his feature directing debut.
After the Q&A, I chatted up Officer about his next projects, which include a drama he's doing with Mongrel Media. "I'm also working on a documentary about a little-known African-Canadian sprinter named Harry Jerome," said Officer. "He was around way before Ben Johnson and Carl Lewis."
