As anticipation builds for next week’s 2014 SXSW Film Festival, the Narrative Competition title “Wild Canaries” has released a new poster for its upcoming premiere.
“Wild Canaries” is a comedic murder mystery written and directed by Lawrence Michael Levine (“Gabi on the Roof in July”). It follows Barri (Sophia Takal) and Noah (Levine), a newly engaged couple saddened by the death of their beloved elderly neighbor. Barri suspects foul play and teams with her roommate Jean (Alia Shawkat) to investigate, despite Noah’s skepticism. Soon, they find reason to believe that everyone in the building could be a reasonable suspect, including one of them.
“Wild Canaries” co-stars Kevin Corrigan, Annie Parisse and Jason Ritter. It was produced by Little Teeth Pictures in association with Uncorked Productions, and will premiere at SXSW on Saturday, March 8 at 4:15 pm at the Alamo Ritz. Take a look at the poster below:
