Vancouver Film Critics Circle: Best Supporting Actress in a Canadian Film: Tara Pratt.

“The film takes what could have been a highly divisive topic and comes out of it poking fun at all sides.”—Richard Scheib, Sci-Fi, Horror & Fantasy Film Review

No Men Beyond This Point is an absurdist mockumentary which presents an alternate universe where,in the 1950s, women suddenly gained the ability to reproduce asexually.

Director Sawers blends mocked-up historical scenes and real stock footage to hilarious effect, offering a witty retelling of world history, rewritten with women in charge.

In the present day, a “mocumentary” film crew follows 37-year-old Andrew Myers (Patrick Gilmore), now the youngest man in the world, as he works as a servant for partners Terra (Tara Pratt) and Iris (Kristine Cofsky). Andrew and Iris, however, become attracted to each other and requisite complications ensue.

 

Where women rule everything, No Men Beyond This Point is an enjoyable, deadpan romp.
