Emmy Award-winning stylist, Patricia Field, has done a lot more than Sex and the City.
She has spent several decades saving lives and giving hope to lost outsiders who society frowned upon--transsexuals, club kids, drag queens, gay teenagers, butch-dykes, people who needed to escape from their hometowns because they were never understood.
This is the story of a close-knit unconventional family in New York City--the House of Field--who have single-handedly changed music and fashion for the world several times over.
Their story is one of courage, hope and dreams. In making this movie, Toronto filmmaker Mars Roberge becomes part of that family, returning to his homeland over a decade later with an uplifting story to tell of the little house that could.
Made solely with the help of his friend, Bob Lesser *the one-man crew* and a couple friends here and there from 2006-2012.
Marking it's 13th film festival and 22nd screening, The Little House That Could comes back to Mars' home to play at Censured In Canada at 4 pm SHARP.
Come see the Canadian film festival premiere at CineCycle on Saturday, January 25th.
Mars will be there to present the movie before he takes off to NYC for the first day of shooting on his next feature film,Scumbag.
