“Beautiful, smart, irreverant, and really f*cking funny. Simply put, it’s divine.” says Kristy Puchko of Pajiba. Here’s your first look at the film…

Immediately following the film, star Udo Kier (“Pat”) and writer/director Todd Stephens will join the premiere live via Zoom!

Legendary actor Udo Kier stars as retired hairdresser Pat Pitsenbarger, who escapes the confines of his small-town Sandusky, Ohio nursing home after learning of his former client’s dying wish for him to style her final hairdo. Soon, Pat embarks on an odyssey to confront the ghosts of his past – and collect the beauty supplies necessary for the job. SWAN SONG is a comical and bittersweet journey about rediscovering one’s sparkle, and looking gorgeous while doing so. 105 minutes | dir. Todd Stephens
