Kenny – smARTfilms: Make Me Smile Series
Past Event

Join us for four weeks of films featuring gentle comedies with wit and absurdities, some pathos, and affability! The Make Me Smile Series is designed with that sole purpose in mind—to make us smile! As the perfect balm for the Pacific Northwest’s grey, December days, these films are a solid way to get ready for the holiday season and a most amusing way to end the Year 2021.

FEATURED FILM – Kenny (Australia)

2008 | 1h33m | PG-13

This unexpectedly charming comedy comes from the brother team of Shane Jackson (starring as Kenny) and Clayton Jackson (Writer/Director).  Bitingly funny (but never crude), the film follows Kenny and his crew to music festivals, sporting events, and building sites as they provide and maintain porta-potties. In recognition of his good work, Kenny is sent to the Mecca of waste management, the International Pumper and Cleaner Expo in Nashville, Tennessee (a real annual event) … or as he affectionately calls it, “Poo HQ”.  While the script is riddled with quality one-liners, KENNY has nothing but respect for its central character as he juggles family tensions, fatherhood, first-time travels and porta-potties with charm, humor and unflinching dignity.
