Chicago’s own Chris Hefner is just about set to release his second feature-length film, The Poisoner.  Filmed in black and white, this strange tale tells of the marriage between a man and a woman forming a eerie contract. He convinces her to wed him with the intent of slowly poisoning him to death. Though the contract is agreed to, the marriage  doesn’t go as planned.

The multi-talented Hefner has had gallery showings at Finch, Heaven and MCA. He’s also collaborated with director Guy Maddin for the “Hauntings” short film series. Watch The Poisoner trailer or the feature The Pink Hotel, and you’ll definitely see the influence. He also plays a mean musical saw.

Head on over to his website for a selection of good stuff and learn how you can help him distribute The Poisoner.
