Join BUFF and Imagine Magazine at the Somerville Theatre on November 15th as we celebrate Imagine’s 20th Anniversary with the New England Premiere of THE MAN WHO KILLED HITLER AND THEN THE BIGFOOT followed by a live Q&A with writer/director Robert D. Krzykowski, executive producer Douglas Trumbull, visual effects supervisor Richard Yuricich, and composer Joe Kraemer.
The story follows a legendary American war veteran named Calvin Barr (Sam Elliott) who, decades after serving in WWII and assassinating Adolf Hitler, must now hunt down the fabled Bigfoot. Living a peaceful life in New England, the former veteran is contacted by the FBI and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police to lead the charge as the creature is carrying a deadly plague and is hidden deep inside the Canadian wilderness.
In addition to Robert D. Krzykowski, the film was produced by Patrick Ewald, Lucky McKee, and Shaked Berenson. Academy Award-nominated John Sayles serves as executive producer alongside Oscar-winning filmmaker Douglas Trumbull, and Louise Lovegrove, Deborah Shriver and John Shriver. Casting is by Kellie Roy in association with Lisa Lobel of Boston Casting.
2 ticket levels are offered:
$75 for the 6:30 VIP Reception + the screening/Q&A
$15 for just the 8pm screening/Q&A
“AN ABSOLUTE AMERICAN CLASSIC… with a mythic performance from Sam Elliott that should land him an Oscar… Everyone should watch it as soon as they’re humanly able—it’s a film that could make the world a better place.” ★★★★★
-Alan Simmons, Live for Films
“THE MAN WHO KILLED HITLER AND THEN THE BIGFOOT moulds the hellishly real with the whimsical to get us to question our place in the world. It is malevolent, hopeful and incredibly moving – a fantasy for the ponderous imagination.”
-Charlie Oughton, Starburst
“A wise, odd, and unforgettable ballad… Great detail in pacing and production design, their dreaminess enhanced by Joe Kraemer’s traditional orchestral score… A movie of an old soul, one that’s wise beyond its decades… Exquisite…”
-Nick Allen, RogerEbert.com
