Big Fur KC premiere

Post by taxi » Wed Apr 17, 2019 10:56 am

I realize this is shameless self-promotion, but thought some raggers might be interested. And, for a couple hours, it will be part of the Kansas City Scene. Well OK, North Kansas City. After 6 years, my feature documentary is finished and will play at Screenland Armour on Sunday, May 5th at 5:30.

“Big Fur” is a wry, funny portrait of an eccentric artist-hero. World Champion taxidermist Ken Walker builds a life-sized Bigfoot, based on frames from an iconic 1967 movie, and unveils her at the World Taxidermy Championships.
While Ken would love to win Best in Show, his real hope is that putting “Patty” on display will prompt some hunter to open his freezer and pull out the proof that Bigfoot is real. Instead, it’s Ken’s love life that gets thawed out.
Although true love proves illusory, Ken is still sure that any day Bigfoot's existence will be confirmed. Until then, he’ll keep searching for both.

Thanks everyone!
Yes, Ken Walker, the star/subject of the movie, will be there and we'll be doing a Q&A afterwards. Oh, and Patty will be there, too. She's Ken's Bigfoot re-creation. She'd love to have her photo taken with you!

A great movie! It was a full house at Screenland last night. For those not able to make it, put this one on your list and keep an eye out for the next opportunity to see it.
