MARCH 19, 21: East Coast US Pontypool Premiere

The Museum of Modern Art in New York has announced a number of film exhibitions in relation to their Canadian film exhibition series: Canadian Front 2009. This March will include the American East Coast Premiere of Bruce McDonald's Pontypool on March 19th and 21st. From MoMA.org:
Pontypool. 2008. Canada. Directed by Bruce McDonald. Screenplay by Tony Burgess, from his novel Pontypool Changes Everything. With Stephen McHattie, Lisa Houle, Georgina Reilly. Maverick filmmaker Bruce McDonald, whose The Tracey Fragments was a highlight of last year's Canadian Front, is back in full force with Pontypool, a taut, smart chamber horror story in which a virus, spread by language, turns listeners into flesh-eating zombies. The action takes place in a radio station whose broadcasts may be a big part of the problem. Courtesy of IFC Films. 96 min.
