The Twentieth Century
3 Nov 2020 - 22 Nov 2020
Wouldn’t it be great if you could rewrite history to make it more entertaining? That’s exactly what Matthew Rankin has done in his debut feature, as he reimagines the formative years of former Canadian Prime Minister Mackenzie King as a series of abject humiliations. Divided into chapters, we follow King through an absurd political hellscape as he strives to reach the top. Using antiquated analogue techniques and Monty Python-esque animation and humour, this bizarre biopic plays fast and loose with history as it riotously roasts both its subject and the political legacies of Canada.
