Day Seven at the Festival
The films to watch for on another busy day at Cinequest include the twist-filled crooks-in-suits crime drama Krews, a mixed bag with some potential. 6:45pm at Camera 12.
Also Heiran, an affecting and compassionate family drama from Iran: First-time director Shalizeh Arefpour “unfolds this tragic tale with no discernible melodrama.” 2pm at Camera 12.
The documentary The Sonosopher tells the story of a Beat-poet-turned-Mormon-professor who specializes in odd-ball incantory, meaning-free sound poems. 4pm at Camera 3.
Peepers, whose Canadian filmmakers, although jet-lagged, made the rounds at Metro’s Friday-night Cinequest party at So. First Billiards, is the voyeuristic-delight tale of a bunch of roof crawlers who start spying on their neighbors. The movie is enlivened by the “skin scenes and Montreal’s sturdy tradition of improv comedy,” says Richard von Busack. 9:15pm at Camera 12.
