Lawrence & Holloman is the dark and twisted story of a cynical and suicidal accounting clerk (Holloman) who gets taken under the wing of a happy-go-lucky, ever-optimistic suit salesman (Lawrence). Lawrence the optimist tries to teach Holloman the pessimist how to live happily and remain positive, until his own good luck starts to turn... Lawrence's fiance dumps him, his car is demolished, his dog goes missing, he loses his job, and his apartment is burned to the ground... and that's just the beginning! Is happiness determined by our outlook on life? Or can our destiny be changed... by another. Based on the hysterical and highly successful stage play by two-time Governor General Award-winning writer Morris Panych.

Matthew Kowalchuk
For his debut feature film Lawrence & Holloman, Matthew recently won the "Emerging Director Award" at the Vancouver International FF and the "Rising Star Filmmaker Award" and "Best Canadian Film" at the Edmonton International FF. Matthew first partnered with his Lawrence & Holloman collaborator Daniel Arnold on the 35mm short film The Janitors, which won the NSI Drama Prize and screened at numerous festivals including VIFF, EIFF, CIFF, Whistler, Hollywood FF, and interfilm Berlin, and was broadcast on CBC and Italian payTV. Since then, his body of work has included a 16mm experimental silent short Hearing Test, a one-shot music video You Make Me OK, and the recent commission of his live-action/animated short Penguins (Are so sensitive to my needs). Other works have been finalists for the NSI Drama Prize, DGC’s Kickstart, Hot Shot Shorts, and Crazy 8s. Matthew lives and works in Vancouver BC, Canada.
