MDFF is pleased to announce the sophomore feature from director Kazik Radwanski, HOW HEAVY THIS HAMMER. The film will have its World Premiere next month as part of the 40th Toronto International Film Festival in the Contemporary World Cinema programme.
Erwin, a 47-year-old father of two, spends his time idly procrastinating between work and family, and is seemingly more engaged by playing a crude Viking computer game. His listless energy is contrasted on weekends by throwing himself into ‘old boys’ rugby matches. As Erwin’s marriage with his wife becomes increasingly compromised, something stirs inside him… or maybe something has stopped stirring.
