Film professor Min Bae’s thriller Stillwater, set in prohibition-era Windsor, will enjoy its world premiere November 4, during the Windsor International Film Festival.
It tells the story of Jackson, a young man working in 1923 to provide for his mother and sister. When he can’t afford medicine that might save his sister from the Spanish flu, Jackson desperately turns to stealing alcohol from the cellar of a local speakeasy. How will the proprietor react when he is caught red-handed?
Wednesday’s screening begins at 6 p.m. in the Capitol Theatre, 121 University Avenue West. Find ticket information on the festival’s website.
