The September 24 screening will be followed by a Q&A featuring filmmaker Lindsay Mackay.
Carey, a music teacher, throws a birthday concert for her husband, Simon, which rekindles reminiscences of their past. Through comedy, music and memory, we follow the story of Carey and Simon’s relationship, the birth of their child and the lie that threatens to f*&k it all up! Equal parts humour and heartbreak, it tells two love stories at once, exploring the blessings and challenges of romance, marriage, parenting, loss and moving on.
Director Lindsay MacKay’s sophomore film, THE SWEARING JAR, is an intricately constructed musical romance. From swearing off swearing to keeping life-changing secrets to holding on to feelings longer than most would expect, there is no end to what a couple will do for love. Screenwriter Kate Hewlett's incredibly powerful story began as an award-winning stage play at the Toronto Fringe Festival. Now, it is taken to the screen, featuring a score of her own original music.
