Mass for Shut-Ins (w/ There Lived the Colliers)
Sun Apr 08: 3.00pm

Winston DeGiobbi
1h 5m
Series - Future//Present: Canadas New Wave
Twentysomething Kay Jay sleeps on his grandfather Loppers couch. The computers on the fritz and theres not much of anything to do; theres a lot of sitting around, eating 5-cent candies and drinking pop. Bored, Kay Jay plays with fire, aimlessly wanders through the night, encounters strangers and gets hassled by September, his aggro, delinquent brother. Chained to a life of co-dependency, he passively navigates his isolated existencebut you can see the desire to escape in his eyes.

Mass for Shut-Ins depicts a comatose environment in which the aging residents are dwindling away and the futures of the young are dimly lit at best. Director Winston DeGiobbi bends the mundane slightly towards the surreal, distilling the directionless state of his characters into poetry and poignantly articulating the essence of their milieu. Set in New Waterford, Cape Breton, where the poverty rate is among the worst in the country, Mass for Shut-Ins is a stark yet compassionate portrait of the underclass.
