ANGSTAGRAM FROM POCHSY

 

ANGSTAGRAM FROM POCHSY*

 

A crie de coeur from the cutting room floor: desiccating Super-8 film strips from a lifetime ago find new life with new words as Pochsy imagines a wild new bio-frontier. A filmic Frankenstina.

Cinematography by Peter Moller.

(*Pochsy is pronounced “Poxy” and is an anagram for “Psycho.”)

 


 

Artist Bio

 

Keep Frozen (Pochsy Productions) develops the award-winning stage and screen works of writer, director and cult comedienne Karen Hines (a.k.a. Pochsy). Hines’s genre-defying dark comedies have traveled the globe, winning her a loyal following and international critical acclaim.

Hines’ keen musings on modern life have charmed, horrified, and cemented her reputation as “One of the gems of Canadian theatre” (Toronto Star); “Savagely Funny” (NOW Magazine); “Eerie, funny brilliance,” (Liz Nicholls, Edmonton Journal).
