Skip Tracer is a film with a great mix of hard boiled noir, dunked with social commentary, mixed with a tax shelter vibe”, Paul Gordon, Lost Dominion Screenings Collective Programmer tells Ottawa Indie Fest when we recently caught up with him.

Set on the mean streets of Vancouver in the late 1970s, Skip Tracer is a free-wheeling private detective story with the twist that the detective is a loan agency’s debt collector hunting down ‘skips’ who have stopped repaying their loans.

Prior to the film’s screening at the ByTowne Cinema on April 21st, Paul tells us what he personally likes about the film and about the newly minted digital version of the film.

Why did you decide to screen Skip Tracer as part of Lost Dominion’s on-going series of film screenings?

Skip Tracer is a personal favorite that we discovered back around 2006 from the great website www.canuxploitation.com (Your Complete Guide to Canadian B-Film). In 2010, we played a 16mm print of the film during our first Canadian Cult Revue season at the Mayfair Theatre. Back then we were doing double bills and the film played after John Paizs’s Crime Wave. Five years later we figured it was time to bring it back.
