Brace yourself…it’s not just TIFF in town right now…
Based on a Theatrical Production of the same name, Shelf Life introduces us to Tina, Pam, and Scotty (O-Lan Jones, Andrea Stein & Jim Turner) were taken down into Mom and Dad’s well-stocked bomb shelter when Kennedy was assassinated in 1963… and they never came out. Thirty years later, Mom and Dad are a long-dead ‘bag of bones’ and the now-grown kids have created a life for themselves based on remnants from the 60’s, intermittent output from the TV and their wild imaginations.
Shelf Life was a dark comedy that was conceived and written by O-Lan Jones, Andrea Stein and Jim Turner as a result of their rumination on what must become of people boxed in tiny spaces for long, long periods of time.
Despite a strong festival run and many positive reviews; director Paul Bartel’s Shelf Life ultimately remained unreleased and sadly never found the audience it deserved. After decades underground, the original 35mm negative has been uncovered just in time to release the film for its 25th Anniversary and is screening this Saturday September 7th at 8PM with the cast in attendance!!! Your chance to win simply couldn’t be easier.
