Mise En Scenesters to screen underseen gem

Saturday, Nov. 29

The Canadian cult oddity “Crime Wave” remains one of the most criminally underseen films of the 1980’s. An early example of postmodern filmmaking, the story details screenwriter Stephen Penny’s attempts to write a crime film in the grand cinematic tradition. He has a variety of potential beginnings and endings, but he struggles to find a middle. He discovers an opportunity for script-doctoring assistance through a mysterious man named Dr. Jolly, who inhabits a surreal version of the American south. Borrowing the visual styles of everything from educational films to Hollywood gangster dramas, “Crime Wave” presents a world full of vibrant color and boundless energy, but with a strange, putrid presence lingering just outside the frame, says Mise En Scenesters’ Chris Dortch. Tickets are $5 dollars, and all of the proceeds go to the filmmaker. The screening will take place Saturday, Nov. 29 at 8:30 p.m. Tickets are available via the Chattanooga Film Festival Shopify store, located at chattanooga-film-fest.myshopify.com.
