IFP Screen Forward Presents: HOW HEAVY THIS HAMMER
30 John Street at Made in NY Media Center
Time: 7pm – 9:30pm
A married father of two nearing middle age, Erwin (Erwin Van Cotthem) finds the only outlet for his shapeless, sublimated rage in online gaming and violent rugby action. Withdrawing further and further into his own world, Erwin is conscious of and frustrated by his stunted existence, but unable or unwilling to pull himself out of his rut. Enigmatic yet empathetic, How Heavy This Hammer is a funny, forlorn vision of North American masculinity at a crossroads.

In this send-up of Reagonomics and consumerism, a down and out young punk gets a job working with a seasoned repo man, but what awaits him in his new career is a series of outlandish adventures revolving around aliens, the CIA and a most wanted ’64 Chevy. End the night with this insanely relevant 1984 film.
