How Heavy This Hammer
Location: Bartos Screening Room
With Kazik Radwanski in person
Dir. Kazik Radwanski. Canada. 2015. 75 mins. With Erwin Van Cotthem, Kate Ashley, Seth Kirsh. New York Premiere. In English. The second feature by Canadian filmmaker Kazik Radwanksi (Tower, 2012) is an intense, intimate, and ruefully funny portrait of masculinity at a crossroads. A married father of two nearing middle age, Erwin (Erwin Van Cotthem) finds the only outlet for his shapeless, sublimated rage in online gaming and bloody rugby action. Withdrawing further and further into his own world, and in danger of completely alienating the people closest to him, Erwin is conscious of and frustrated by his stunted existence, but struggles to pull himself out of his rut.
