Buzzard
Joel Potrykus, 2015
USA | Format: DCP | 97 minutes

One-week exlusive run opens March 6

Winner of the Locarno Film Festival’s 2012 Best Emerging Director award for his debut feature Ape, Joel Potrykus makes a brazen leap forward with his sophomore effort, Buzzard, a darkly comical look at a slacker office temp who gets by on cold SpaghettiOs while getting off on stealing refund checks from his employer. Filmed on a shoestring budget, often guerrilla-style, in the writer-director’s native Grand Rapids and Detroit, Michigan, Buzzard stars an unforgettable Joshua Burge as an angry young man who, through a series of small, increasingly unhinged mutinies, sticks it to corporate America on behalf of the great unsung 99%. Citing Alan Clarke, Jim Jarmusch, Michael Haneke, and Kelly Reichardt among his influences, Potrykus offers a barbaric yawp for truly independent regional American cinema. An Oscilloscope Laboratories release.

New Directors/New Films 2014

"A genuinely brilliant contemporary satire of workplace frustrations.... Office Space on crack." —Indiewire

"The incredible Joshua Burge is a Buster Keaton for the 99%." —Nicholas Elliott, BOMB Magazine

"Potrykus has fashioned a vigorous and strangely compelling character study, a sustained burst of punk-rock ferocity, and one of the most original American films to emerge in some time." —Calum Marsh, Village Voice
