Director Doug Karr’s grandfather was the international power-player David Karr, who died a few short months before Doug was born. Ten For Grandpa is a dramatic comedy exploring the ten questions Doug has always wanted to ask his notorious grandpa whose life included stints as a White House press reporter, a film producer, a powerful millionaire, a defense contractor, a corporate CEO, and some have alleged, a Soviet agent. Ten For Grandpa tries to decipher if this mysterious ancestor really was a manipulative antihero or simply a victim of a McCarthy witchhunt. Filmed in Toronto, Ten For Grandpa premiered at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival.
