John Paizs

Crime Wave
Dir. John Paizs, 1985, Canada, 80 min

“One of the greatest and yet most perversely overlooked debuts in English Canadian movie history, writer-director John Paizs’s Crime Wave announced the birth of a new genre in Canuck cinema: what cultural critic Geoff Pevere dubbed ‘prairie postmodernism.’” (Steve Gravestock, TIFF).

The Winnipeg Film Group is pleased to be able to present a newly struck DCP master of this film.
