QUEEN CITY BLOWOUT (2003)
...Or How to Make A Prairie Sausage
Written and directed by Steven Rumbelow
Starring: Corey Livingstone, Jody Willis and Bernie Mullen.
A dark crime thriller about drugs, money and "bratwurst."
Queen City refers to the city of Regina, the capitol of Saskachewan. These are the central flatlands of Canada where Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid used to hang out when they were on the run. The long winters and the never-ending and relentless winds used to drive people mad and often resulted in suicides. It was so widespread that they eventually coined the local phrase, "The wind blew their minds away."
The story explores the slightly crazed underworld activity of crime factions in a city that has housed the Canadian RCMP HQ for generations.
