About

Welcome to the world of this micro budget feature film starring Winnipeg’s Doreen Brownstone–one of Canada’s oldest actors, and one of the producers’ favourite actors of any age.

Principal photography began on August 18th, 2015, and wrapped on January 31st , 2016.

 

Like her age-mate Betty White, Doreen is doing some of her best work at an age when many actors are long retired. However, unlike White, Brownstone’s greatest performances have been on stage, and therefore are unavailable for fans to enjoy over again, and new fans to discover.

We are thrilled to have the opportunity to both immortalize Doreen Brownstone in a starring role on film while we still can, and to play and work with this amazing actor and pillar of our local performance community.

Principal photography began on August 18th, 2015, and wrapped on January 31st , 2016.

Plot Synopsis:

Legendary B-movie star “Barbara Blackwood” (played by Doreen Brownstone) investigates the mysterious goings on in her apartment building while trying to revitalize her fading career.

Equal parts Curb Your Enthusiasm-style “reality” zaniness, and an affectionate homage to B genre movies of the past and present, the script—which incorporates scenes from past “Barbara Blackwood” movies within our movie—showcases Brownstone’s ability to act in a variety of movie roles and styles, and exploits screenwriter Angus Kohm’s love of, and genius for parodying, B-movie genres.
