Who’s Yer Father?

PEI filmmaker Jeremy Larter’s film premieres at AIFF

Susan Kent and Chris Locke star in the crime-comedy caper Who’s Yer Father

The 43rd Atlantic International Film Festival (AIFF) takes place September 14–21 in Halifax, NS.

There are eight programs, 56 short films, and 20 films representing Atlantic Canada, including the world premiere of Who’s Yer Father? directed by PEI’s Jeremy Larter.

In the PEI-set crime-comedy caper, a down on his luck private investigator (Chris Locke) is hired by Luke Thorne (Matt Wells), a rich businessman in the seafood industry, to investigate suspicious black-market lobster sales in Sandbar Cove. What Larry lacks in investigative skills, he makes up for in plucky optimism and enthusiasm. He takes the job and heads to the scenic rural community where he meets Rhonda (Susan Kent), a local convenience store clerk. When Larry and Rhonda discover a secret about Thorne’s wife, they hatch a plan to blackmail her and escape in pursuit of a new life together—but that plan quickly goes hysterically awry.

For those outside of Halifax, select Atlantic Canadian features and shorts will be available to stream via AIFF Online from September 14–24, giving online patrons an extra three days after the in-person festival is over to catch up on any films they may have missed. Tickets can be purchased for individual feature films, while the shorts can be accessed with the AIFF Online Shorts Pass.
