ARE YOU WITH ME? synopsis
'Are You With Me?' is a feature length documentary film about the legendary filmmaker, Larry Kent; Canada's first independent filmmaker, who produced, wrote and directed his first movie in the early 60's before a film industry in Canada even existed. More than 50 years later, now in his early 80's, he continues to make movies.
Larry Kent has made over 10 feature films in his career and has been praised for his progressive, imaginary and controversial body of work all over the world, but has still somehow managed to have gone largely unnoticed.
The film will document Larry during his 50 year anniversary of making films and will feature interviews with some of the amazing talent that Larry has worked with in his extensive career. It will give an inside look at the Canadian independent film world and all of the struggles and devotion involved. You will also see Larry in his day-to-day, and fall in love with his abundant sense of humor and his relentless, warm character, which has only been described 'as one of a kind'.
