Katrin Bowen's "Amazon Falls"

We attended a great party September 13 @ Toronto's Queen Street West rock venue "The Bovine Sex Club", as Vancouver-based director Katrin Bowen, celebrated the Canada First TIFF screening of her debut feature "Amazon Falls".

The film is described as Bowen's take on her personal 'B-movie' experiences, as a performer in Los Angeles, "...unapologetically exposing the grit behind the glitz of fame..."

Cast includes April Telek as 'Jana', William B Davis as 'Calvin', Zak Santiago as 'Aron', Anna Mae Routledge as 'Li', Ben Ratner as 'Derek',
Tom Braidwood as 'Tommy' and Gabrielle Rose as 'Margaret'.

"...'Jana' is a fading B-movie actress who was famous for her roles in Amazon movies playing a variety of pre-'Xena' warrior-princesses. Nearing 40 she is desperately trying to keep her leg in the B-movie game and decides to pursue her fading career with a zealous fervor. But new roles are elusive and the clock is ticking. Will she admit defeat or finally get her break?..."
