MFVA presents: Canvasman and Two's A Crowd
This is the second in the Maine Film & Video Associationʼs Maine Film Screening series.  Join MFVA for two great films from Maine filmmakers, as well as a post-feature Q&A.

CANVASMAN
Director Gary Rominov
Summary:
Most people know Portland resident Rob Elowitch as the man who runs Barridoff Galleries, one of the most respected art auction houses on the East Coast. Through the gallery, he sells great works by Winslow Homer and Thomas Eakins, to art collectors and museums all over the world. Elowitch comes from one of Maineʼs most accomplished and respected families and is very involved in the Maine Jewish community. He lives with his wife of fifty years, Annette Elowich in a large brownstone that is beautifully decorated with priceless works of art.



But Rob Elowitch has a secret life. So secretive that even his wife has never seem him do it. Heʼs a professional wrestler. Although heʼs now 66 years old, Elowitch travels all over North America and Europe to wrestle under the "mat name" of Robbie Ellis. He takes on men in their twenties in dingy wrestling clubs in primarily working class neighborhoods and defies anyone who thinks age might make him a sucker.



"Canvasman" is a portrait of a man who is less concerned with doing what is expected of him than with living a life fueled by passion and the excitement of the wrestling ring.  His journey is one that teaches us that if we follow our hearts, even if they take us in unlikely directions, we can live our lives uninhibited by age and stereotypes and find out who we really are.



TWO'S A CROWD
Directors: Jim and Tom Isler
Summary:
Twoʼs a Crowd is a comedic documentary about romance, rent control and classic New York characters who invite audiences to question assumptions about love, marriage, relationships and how couples are supposed to act.


Whatʼs the key to a successful marriage? For Allen Sheinman and Collette Stallone, the answer is separate apartments, 20 blocks from each other in New York City, where the couple has lived happily for the first four years of their mid-life marriage. But when the economic downturn takes a toll on their finances, Allen and Collette are forced to cohabit.
