Awaiting Atwood, a film I had the pleasure to be involved with is screening this month! Wheee!
The movie is directed by Beth Mairs of BAM North Productions, who stars in it with her wife, Betty Ann McPherson. I was honoured to donate my books as a perk for the successful Indiegogo campaign.
Two washed-up, middle-aged adventuresses are under the delusion literary icon Margaret Atwood has invited them to stay with her in downtown Toronto. Having nothing better to do for the summer, they turn this into a full-on adventure traveling by bike and canoe from Sudbury to land on Ms. Atwood’s front lawn. En route, they experience a series of misadventures, encountering themes and images from several of Atwood’s best-loved novels.
