GIANT LITTLE ONES
Director: Keith Behrman
Running Time: 94 minutes
ORF favourites The Heavyweights Brass Band will kick off the evening with some New Orleans Jazz-inspired musical stylings followed by Keith Behrman’s sophomore feature film, Giant Little Ones, a heartfelt and intimate coming-of-age story about friendship, self-discovery, and the power of love without labels. After a drunken encounter alters the dynamics of their long-standing friendship, Franky (Josh Wiggins) and his childhood pal Ballas (Darren Mann) engage in a feud that serves as an outlet for their respective powder kegs of repressed feelings. Shot in and around Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada, it stars rising talents Wiggins, Mann and Taylor Hickson alongside veteran actors Maria Bello, Kyle MacLachlan and Peter Outerbridge. “Giant Little Ones avoids the usual high school clichés, crafting an honest and nuanced 21st-century coming-out story.” (Winnipeg Free Press).
With a musical performance by The Heavyweights Brass Band
Doors open at 7:00 pm, The Heavyweights Brass Band at 8:00 pm, and GIANT LITTLE ONES will begin when the sun goes down (roughly around 9:00 pm).
