SCREENINGS

 

Movie Monday

 

6:30 pm Monday 13 Aug 2012

Doppelgänger Paul, 2011, 81 min

(or a film about how much I hate myself)

 

Following a near-death experience, Karl comes to believe that Paul is his doppelganger. When Karl finally reveals himself to Paul, a unique and troubled relationship begins to form, a relationship that is severely tested when Karl grants Paul the privilege of reading his 20,000 page manuscript, A Book About How Much I Hate Myself. When Karl’s book is published 17 months later in a vastly edited version credited to two other author/doppelgangers, Karl and Paul hit the road to confront the plagiarists but end up confronting themselves instead. A dark and slyly funny comedy. R Official Website or read a review

 

We’ll have Filmmakers Dylan Akio Smith and Kris Elgstrand and Producer Katherine Hazen with us to present this Vancouver-made indie gem!
