95 minutes – Comedy
Release Date: November 27, 2009
Distributor: KInoSmith

It is 1985 and the YouTube generation isn’t even a glimmer in anyone’s eye. The height of home technology is the home video camera and recorder using large VHS tapes. Enter Gord Cooper (Jason Jones) who is thrilled with his Christmas purchase of a the brand-new camera he has given to his uncomfortably pregnant wife, Nancy, and their deeply broken kids (Nick McKinlay and Dylan Everett). Gord`s wife (Samantha Bee), seems strangely excited about having the camera and knowing her husband`s brother Tim (Peter Keleghan) will be there soon. As friends and family begin to appear, the holiday spirit takes liquid form and Cooper’s Camera becomes a window in a live confessional as various drunken rages and all manner of family secrets start spilling out. Shot in the style of an old VHS home movie, this caustic comedy is painfully funny to watch as its characters dig themselves into deeper and deeper holes.
