Join Filmmaker Mike Cheslik, and at least one "Beaver", for a special one night only screening of the surreal slapstick winter comedy that has become a national phenomenon! What is Hundreds of Beavers? Is it a 19th century, supernatural winter epic about a drunken applejack salesman who must go from zero to hero and become the greatest fur trapper by defeating hundreds of beavers? Yes! Is it a winter western? Yes! Is it a glorious tribute to classic Looney Tunes shorts? Yes! Is it a legit homage to the earliest days of silent film comedies in beautiful black and white? Yes! Is it a spectacularly immature, bro-centric epic of outrageous proportions? Yes! Is it the somehow-even-more-insane, more over the top follow up to Ryland Tews and Mike Cheslik’s psychotic masterpiece, Lake Michigan Monster? Yes! Is it a deliriously inventive, amazingly-handcrafted work of visual art? Yes! Will it blow your mind and send you back out into the world with your head spinning and your eyes doing pinwheels? Yes! Is it the kind of movie-lovers movie made to be seen on a big screen, with the soundtrack cranked, surrounded by your friends and neighbors, collectively staring in slack-jawed amazement? Yes, yes, a thousand times yes! (USA, 2023, 108 min., Black & white, DCP)
