FREE POPCORNCold Iron Is A Titanic Comedy is a kabuki opera digital art film playing in artist run centres, screening collectives and film festivals across Canada!
Not to be found at the big box movie theatres, “Cold Iron Is A Titanic Comedy” will appeal to audiences interested in the experimental, risk taking and absurd aspects of film art making. Structured on kabuki opera principles and shot largely in black and white, this film’s challenging, fragmented narrative and cinematic aesthetics stands out in a sea of independent productions and champions film as something more than a vehicle for story.
Described by director Wesley Rickert as a “tin-foil road-trip to Florida & the British Museum, in faster Chinese that dialogues over the electric kettle of Toronto’s City Hall and rotates in perpetual stillness towards a tsunami of row-boat performances”, this 72 minute project was independently made and pursues abstraction, surrealism, dada, performance art, neoism and the absurd. The film premiered January 23, 2014 at CineCycle Cinema in downtown Toronto and according to film and performance reviewer David Bateman “There is never a dull moment as this fun, sexy, surreal, thought provoking seventy minute tour de force floats seamlessly through a titillating and mind blowing consciousness of sight and sound.”
