Hit ‘n Strum opens in Vancouver Friday, March 8th at Fifth Avenue Cinemas.
Winner BEST ACTOR, BEST CINEMATOGRAPHY, REEL INDIE AWARD, Canadian Film Festival ‘12
Vancouver filmmaker and musician, Kirk Caouette directs and stars alongside Michelle Harrison in this award-winning indie film about the friendship formed between a career woman and a homeless busker through self-realization and the power of music.
The story was inspired by an encounter Kirk had with a street musician one cold February morning in Gastown. Kirk sat and listened from a coffee shop patio, mesmerized by the busker’s voice and original songs. He played and played through numb fingers and frozen hands, but not one person even stopped to listen. No one heard him.
This encounter stayed with Kirk and compelled him to start writing the script and the songs that would eventually become the soundtrack to the film.
We hope you’ll join us for the Vancouver premiere of this inspiring local film. If enough people attend the film’s opening weekend, Hit n Strum will have a better chance of being held over!
