jeffreystjulesJefferey St. Jules‘ debut feature Bang Bang Baby is an indie musical that follows the story of a small-town teenager who believes her dream of becoming a famous singer will finally come true when her rock start idol Bobby shore is stranded in town. Her dream soon becomes a nightmare when a leak at a nearby chemical plant starts causing mutations.

Originally from Fall River, Nova Scotia, St. Jules studied creative writing and film at Concordia University. Bang Bang Baby won the 2015 Claude Jutra Award (Academy of Canadian Cinema and Television) and the Best First Feature award at last year’s TIFF.  The film hits theatres in select locations across Canada this month. Check local listings.

“Despite the fact that it’s only his feature film debut, St. Jules is already something of an auteur, with his own unique perspective. The film is part homage to campy, stylized 60s musicals like Bye Bye Birdie. It’s also part science fiction/mutant horror movie. But one thing I can say for sure is that it’s 100% a feminist-friendly coming-of-age flick.” — SheDoesTheCity.com
