What a motley crew: A witless dandy, a gibbering Geologist...and, a mendacious mystic!

Two Plains and a Fancy requires a certain sense-of-humour...and, an appreciation for seriously independent, seriously small budgeted cinema. If you have the sense-of-humour and the appreciation...then, this here film - as bizarre as it the film for you.

Admirably, filmed on film...the directors rehearsed [and rehearsed] their actors so they could keep re-takes to a minimum. Film ain't [y'know] cheap and this is a cheap film! Not everyone will get it, those who do...well done. Those who don't...well, give credit where credit is the sheer tenacity and dedication of independent filmmakers! For this is a shining example!


The(ir) Blurb...

Having conjured up a satirical vision of the 1990s with L for Leisure (LFF 2014), independent filmmaking duo Lev Kalman and Whitney Horn have gone back to the 1890s for their hilarious and highly original follow-up. Shot on 16mm and described as a ‘Spa Western’, Two Plains & a Fancy undermines cowboy genre machismo at every turn. Artistic dandy Milton Tingling, French geologist Ozanne Le Perrier and conwoman-turned-mystic Alta Mariah Sophronia traverse the stunning landscapes and strange ghost towns of Colorado in search of hot springs and New Age thrills. Alternately philosophical, silly and sincerely mind-expanding, this is one journey where digressions are more important than the destination. Fans of sensual bathing, candlelight meditation, paranormal humping and/or John Waters will enjoy.
