David Fennario's Banana Boots

This documentary invites you to join acclaimed playwright David Fennario for a performance of his funny and touching one-man play Banana Boots.

The film recounts Fennario’s memories of Montreal’s Verdun and Point Saint-Charles districts, follows him on a journey to Belfast for the Irish premiere of his hit play Balconville, and details his move from major theatrical performances to community theatre, where he sought to "create theatre that can be used to fight back."

This film deals with mature subject matter. Viewer discretion is advised

  • “An amazing view of Fennario on stage. Behind the facade of the loudmouth socialist, there is a human side. This film captures him well.” — filmlover, 10 Jun 2010
