Calendar Leaves (2005) is a short Coquitlam-shot drama produced by Dudzik Films and based on Michael Serebriakov's short story of the same name.
Coming off of the success of his last movie, Joe's Package, a comedy in the tradition of The Cat Came Back, director Martin Dudzik was looking for a drama to direct. Through an aide, he had received the plot synopsis of Serebriakov's "Calendar Leaves". Serebriakov had written it in the previous year, in response to a cruel practical joke he had witnessed. A month later, on the patio of a Starbucks on Vancouver's East side, the contract that brought Calendar Leaves to life was signed.

Famous quotes containing the words leaves and/or calendar:
“Evolution was in a strange mood when that creation came along.... It makes one wonder just where the plant world leaves off and the animal world begins.”
—John Colton (18861946)
“To divide ones life by years is of course to tumble into a trap set by our own arithmetic. The calendar consents to carry on its dull wall-existence by the arbitrary timetables we have drawn up in consultation with those permanent commuters, Earth and Sun. But we, unlike trees, need grow no annual rings.”
—Clifton Fadiman (b. 1904)
