READ MORE: Canada Cool Comedy Tour Announces Lineup Chosen by MoMA’s Former Film Curator
This fall, the “Canada Cool” film series will prove to Americans that our Canuck neighbors are more than capable of making us laugh. The series is comprised of 10 award-winning Canadian comedy films that have yet to get a stateside release.
The series will open with the documentary feature “Being Canadian,” which tracks comedy writer Robert Cohen’s journey across his native Canada to dispel American stereotypes of Canadians. The series also includes such films as “Asphalt Watches,” an animated feature about a disastrous road trip, “Sunflower Hour,” a mockumentary about the production of a children’s puppet show, and “Bang Bang Baby,” a musical-horror-romance genre-bender that won Best Canadian First Feature at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival.
The above trailer provides a glimpse at some of the films that will run this fall. “Canada Cool” will begin on September 18 in New York and Los Angeles and will hit additional U.S. cities later this year.
