A71 RELEASING INC. ANNOUNCES RELEASE OF "DREAMLAND", COMING TO VOD ON MAY 29!



ANNOUNCES NATIONAL HOME VIEWING RELEASE OF


Bruce McDonald’s DREAMLAND





TORONTO, ON – A71 Releasing Inc. is pleased to announce the national release of beloved cinematic visionary Bruce McDonald’s latest picture, DREAMLAND, hitting AppleTV, Bell, Cineplex, Cogeco, Rogers, Shaw, and Telus on May 29th, 2020.  The release follows a busy festival tour which began with a riotous world premiere at the Brussels International Fantastic Festival in 2019 followed by the Fantasy Film Festival in Germany, the Torino Film Festival in Italy, and a thrilling North American premiere at the 2019 Fantasia International Film Festival.




Reuniting McDonald with collaborators from the 2008 cult favourite PONTYPOOL, DREAMLAND is written by Tony Burgess and Patrick Whistler. The film features a searing Stephen McHattie and Lisa Houle, returning to characters introduced in the post-end-credits coda of PONTYPOOL, Johnny Dead Eyes and Lisa the Killer. McHattie and Houle are joined on screen by Juliette Lewis – who starred in McDonald’s storied PICTURE CLAIRE - and iconic punk rocker, poet, and pundit Henry Rollins.  


A surreal, darkly comic vision blending horror and fantasy, DREAMLAND follows reluctant hit man Johnny Dead Eyes (McHattie) who - on the orders of diabolical underworld kingpin Hercules (Rollins) - must cut off the pinkie finger of his jazz legend doppelgänger The Maestro (also McHattie). Johnny makes his way through a neo-noir cityscape populated with street urchins, vampires, and a crime queen called The Countess (Juliette Lewis), while - like all movie hit men - contemplating getting out of the game. But first he’s got to set a few things right…

DREAMLAND is produced with support from Telefilm Canada, Film Fund Luxembourg, BNP Parabis Fortis Film Finance, Wallimage and VOO & BE TV with development support from Telefilm Canada and Creative BC.
