Director Rob Nilsson made Stroke, an intriguing, character-driven story in 2000. Stroke is a curious blending and blurring of the documentary and the fictional narrative, featuring Ron Perlam among the various actors that appear in this collaborative experiment. For those familiar with the work of independent filmmaker Jim Jarmusch (Night On Earth, Coffee And Cigarettes), this film should be a welcome experience.

Rob Nilsson has been making truly independent films since Northern Lights, his first film from 1978, which won the Camera d’Or at Cannes. Nilsson’s 1987 film Heat And Sunlight also earned him the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival. I encourage you to take this rare opportunity to attend the screening of Stroke with director Rob Nilsson, and be sure to see his new film Imbued, which is also playing the Saint Louis International Film Festival.
