Tower, dir. Kazik Radwanski, Canada 2012, 78 min., English

Kazik Radwanski's acclaimed feature debut follows the routine of 34-year-old Derek (Derek Bogart), a balding, basement-dwelling animator unable (or unwilling) to advance into adulthood. Single, still living at home, and working low-commitment construction for his uncle, Derek finds himself unprepared for the intimacy of a new relationship. Raccoons, meanwhile, get into the family’s trash, prompting Derek, in a feeble display of agency, to concoct a plan to capture one. This intimate, unvarnished character portrait, shot handheld in claustrophobic proximity to its principal (a Radwanski hallmark), offers jagged-pill insights into a generation’s arrested maturation. 
This screening marking the 10th anniversary of the feature accompanies the screening of Kazik Radwanski’s short films as part of the London Short Film Festival. It will be preceded by an introduction from Kazik Radwanski.
