| Street kid with a video camera
This is a good film. Mr. Bessai shows his directing chops in this nifty feature about street kids making their own little movie factory helmed by the megalomanic director/dictator Johnny. This is an insightful look not only into the hearts and lives of a disinfranchised youth but also into the mind of a director at odds with himself and the creative process. Not your average canadian film.
