Canadian master Bruce McDonald (Hard Core Logo, The Tracey Fragments) teams with veteran playwright and screenwriter Daniel MacIvor for this offbeat coming-of-age comedy-drama. In a small Nova Scotian town in 1976, 15-year-old Kit and his platonic girlfriend Alice decide to shake up their go-nowhere existence by hitchhiking to Sydney to visit Kit’s glamorous but unstable mother – a journey that will force them to face some hard truths about themselves and point the way toward a more honest and fully-lived future.
FAVA FEST is proud to present the April 21st screening of Weirdos. For a complete festival schedule and details see FAVA.CA.
