OPENING GALA: THE EDITOR

Bella and Hand (SAMANTHA HILL)Director: Adam Brooks & Matthew Kennedy | Canada | 2014 | 1hr 42 mins

Kicking off Celluloid Screams 2014 in fine style, we proudly present the mindboggling new opus from Canadian filmmaking collective Astron-6 – an affectionate tribute to the Italian giallo thrillers of the 1970s and 1980s.

Rey Ciso was once the greatest editor the world had ever seen, but after a horrific accident left him with four wooden fingers on his right hand, he’s had to resort to cutting low budget trash pictures. When the lead actors from the film he’s been editing turn up murdered at the studio, Rey is fingered as the number one suspect. As the bodies continue to pile up, Rey struggles to prove his innocence and learn the sinister truth lurking behind the scenes.

We are delighted to welcome Adam Brooks, Matthew Kennedy and Conor Sweeney to Celluloid Screams to introduce the film and participate in a Q&A afterwards.
