Director: Adam Schafer
40 min, Betacam SP
"There's no time to be scared of the truth." Part nastee boy diary Mississaugua-style, part coming-of-age tale, 19-year-old Schafer's raw video pushes home movie conventions beyond the breaking point. Armed only with his camcorder, and stuck in a grim, confusing and almost hopeless suburban wasteland, Schafer shot over 200 hours of his everyday life and cut it down into a hard-edged, rapid-fire tour through a strange, rarely seen place. Raging teenage hormones, high school gang violence, rampant drug consumption, boredom, fear, Adam's gay dad, his dying grandmother - all are woven together with Schafer's metaphoric musings on his own fate as a lost, wild fox about to be shot. David McIntosh.
