Kung Fu Elliot frame grab 06

Just when you thought all the announcements for the Fantasia International Film Festival were done, they’ve come through with one more high profile get.

The Slamdance winning Grand Jury Prize documentary Kung Fu Elliot will screen July 30 as part of its Quebec premiere during the festival.

The film borders the line of a mockumentary in telling the story of a man named Elliot “White Lightning” Scott, who has a dream of being Canada’s first true action movie star. The Canadian filmmakers Matthew Bauckman and Jaret Belliveau follow him as he works to make a kung-fu epic Blood Fight, watching as his tale of determination turns into one of delusion.
