Free screening Friday to feature film grad works

By day, Marshall Sfalcin — a reluctant construction worker — lays ceramic tiles in kitchens and bathrooms through Windsor. But by night, he escapes his blue-collar life by making movies.

The Rise and Fall of the Grumpy Burger follows his obsessive efforts to tell the story of his family and its once legendary fast-food empire.

Directed by UWindsor alumnus Matt Gallagher, it will be screened Friday, Feb. 28, as part of a Windsor Film Society series featuring works by graduates of the Department of Communication, Media, and Film. Opening the bill is Braunte Petric’s short documentary Defender.

The screening is set for the Performance Hall, SoCA Armouries, 37 University Ave. East. Admission is free. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the films begin at 7:30 p.m. Learn more on the event’s Facebook page.

The series will continue March 20 with screenings of Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer, produced by Patrick White, and Obscura, directed by Armend Bajrami.
