Strange Deal

Films on Purpose Launches  Films Sans Purpose
By any measure, the last few years have been tough ones,
so Films on Purpose is launching a sideline:
Films Sans Purpose,
that is films just for fun!
We are thrilled to have as our first screening the premiere of
Strange Deal
 by FoP board member Nelle Stokes and her husband Jeff Butcher.
And we are happy to screen it at our FoP’s first venue,
the antique bowling alley
at the home of Claire Schiffman & Andrew Butterfield
at 197 Broadway, Pleasantville, NY 10570
Parking available on nearby streets: Willow, Otsego, and Gramatan
(Please don’t block the driveway; follow signs for street parking)
So join us for a fun night on
June 11th, 7:00pm
Strange Deal is a gritty comedic noir about two lifelong buddies ensnared in the homicidal power play of a rogue detective.
Their friendly neighborhood poker game turns from deadpan to deadly, in a macabre farce of blackmail and betrayal.
Are you in?
Director Jeff Butcher and Producer Nelle Stokes are partners in life and work.
They made their first feature film, Criminals, in the 1990s to great critical review and are delighted to have a new film to help us launch
Films Sans Purpose.
