Radiant City

In this feature length film Gary Burns, Canada's king of surreal comedy, joins journalist Jim Brown on an outing to the suburbs. Venturing into territory both familiar and foreign, they turn the documentary genre inside out, crafting a vivid account of life in The Late Suburban Age.

    “An interesting look at the compartmentalization and placelessness of suburban society, while it begs the viewer to think about the meaning and representation of community. ” — jdiz, 18 Jul 2013

    “I was surprised to learn that some sequences were shot in Oakville. I thought they were all from the Calgary burbs. But then, that's the point of the film: how Suburbia is all interchangeable...” — Shawn, 31 Mar 2011
