Sunflower Hour

Directed by Aaron Houston
Canada, 2011
Comedy

Synopsis

This mockumentary follows four puppeteers competing for a spot on the children’s television program Sunflower Hour. Infectious humor, eccentric characters, and blatant exaggeration in a movie that posits a clear thesis: certain people should not be allowed to entertain and educate our children.

This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
