So it is with great pleasure that I can announce a rather bad ass addition into Jennifer's Bodies 2014. Not only will I be showing a number of shorts from Vancouver native Karen Lam, I shall also be giving her feature Evangeline its UK premier, or more importantly, as I'm a patriotic Scot...its SCOTTISH premier!! :)
“IF I SHOULD DIE BEFORE I WAKE…”
Evangeline (Kat de Lieva) has left her sheltered upbringing to reinvent herself in college. As she begins to break out of her shell, she attracts the attention of a sociopathic fraternity leader (Richard Harmon) and his two cohorts.
Not only does she have an X Files boy in Evangline however, she also has Richard Harmon from both The Killing (pictured below with my beloved Holder...the closest I've ever came to finding Mulder again), and Bates Motel in it!! This is going to be a very different type of killer than what Harmon's seen in both of those shows though. Bwahahahaha.
The boys might be awesome, however, it's Kat de Lieva as Evangeline who we really need to look out for!! That's all I'm gonna say. Heehee. :) She is fucking awesome in this, and I can't wait to see more from her as well. In casting both Harmon and de Lieva, Karen has definitely picked two names that I'd actually recommend going out of your way to check out their work. And if like Harmon, de Lieva keeps popping up in my favourite shows, it's just going to all the cooler to watch them grow as actors!
Before Evangeline though, I'll be showing a number of Karen's shorts, to show her versatility as a filmmaker, and one who is based in my favourite non Scottish place....the place where ALL the good TV shows are filmed. I am of course talking about Vancouver!! Yay! :)
First up is The Meeting -
In a weekly meet-up, four serial killers confess their sins and hope for redemption. But all hell breaks loose when a newcomer pops in, and threatens to join the group...
A dark fairytale about an imaginative little girl who saves a bullied boy, and is granted a secret wish.
