Action Punch in Jonquière - April 24th 2023
Cabane à Sang International Greasy Film Festival will present a special selection of knockout films in Jonquière on April 24.
Taking the name of Action Punch, the evening will take place at Café-Bar L’Envol (2406, rue Saint-Dominique) from 7 p.m. and promises to knock thrill-seekers out of their seats.
The Australian feature film Lieutenant Jangles (2018), directed by Nic Champeaux, will be presented for the occasion. The gory and twisted comedy, which draws on the aesthetics of 1980s trash cinema, has built a cult following since its festival run a few years ago. The short films Lave tes mains (2022) by Etienne Laurendeau and Monsieur Magie (2022) by Patrick Gauthier will be screened before the feature in order to warm up the crowd.
Eddy will host the Action Punch screening, which will be showcased by the darkwave and abrasive industrial atmospheres of D'Junkyard's Freak.
