LUCKY: Indie Film Series at Capitol 6 Event Screening

ONE NIGHT ONLY SCREENING ON 10/25! LUCKY follows the spiritual journey of a 90 year old atheist and the quirky characters that inhabit his off the map desert town.

Acclaimed character actor John Carroll Lynch’s directorial debut LUCKY is at once a love letter to the life and career of Harry Dean Stanton as well as a meditation on mortality, loneliness, spirituality, and human connection.

Filmmakers screen documentary featuring Canadian theatre and TV legends

Captured over the course of three years, Martha Burns and Susan Coyne filmed Robin and Mark rehearsing in the intimacy of Robin’s home outside of Stratford. Although Susan and Martha did not know it at the time, Robin was quite ill and would die shortly after the film was finished.

Robin & Mark & Richard III is the story of an unusual collaboration between one of Canada’s most influential directors, Robin Phillips (previously of Stratford Festival) and the gifted comedian and performer, Mark McKinney (of Kids in the Hall, Saturday Night Live and Slings and Arrows fame), as they delve into the one of Shakespeare’s most challenging plays, Richard III. Robin and Mark had not met before, and they had no idea what might happen. It was to be an adventure of two brilliant minds exploring Shakespeare’s world.

Captured over the course of three years, Martha Burns and Susan Coyne filmed Robin and Mark rehearsing in the intimacy of Robin’s home outside of Stratford. Although Susan and Martha did not know it at the time, Robin was quite ill and would die shortly after the film was finished. This film is a love letter to a passionate, complicated, irreplaceable genius. The film has been called “a wonderful look into how actors build performances over time” (Toronto Film Scene) and “equal parts interview, scene study class and in-memoriam tribute to Phillips” (Now Magazine).

The Department of Theatre invites the public to attend a free screening of “Robin & Mark & Richard III” on Tuesday, Sept. 19 at 12:30 p.m. Afterwards, join Martha Burns and Susan Coyne, the film’s producers and co-directors, as well as acclaimed Canadian actors and writers, for a question and answer period.

What: Screening: Robin & Mark & Richard III, followed by Q&A with directors

When: Tuesday, Sept. 19, 2017 at 12:30 p.m.

Where: Phoenix Theatre, UVic
