Christmas Eve. With a camera in one hand and a syringe in the other, a man enters a long-term care centre with the intent to put his father on trial and eventually kill him. Complications: the old man is autistic; the attending staff is bothersome. Countdown: the closed circuit proceedings last 24 hours. Drift: the avenger finally condemns his whole family, himself included. Finish line: the encounter with death ends over a box of chocolate cookies.
Robert Morin, founding member of the Coop Vidéo de Montréal in 1977. Morin has made about thirty films and videos of varying lengths, of which most have won awards and nominations internationally.
