Being Canadian

Director Robert Cohen
Year 2015
Run Time 90min
Genre Documentary
This humourous feature documentary probes a fundamental question: what does it mean to be Canadian? When aspiring TV writer Robert Cohen moved to the US from Calgary in an effort to kick-start his career, he was dismayed to realize how little people knew about his beloved homeland. After decades of dealing with lame stereotypes, he decided to set out on a coast-to-coast journey to make a film that would show the world what being Canadian is really all about. Interwoven with interviews with a variety of fellow countrymen such as Mike Myers, Howie Mandel, Seth Rogen, Russell Peters and Michael J. Fox, the result is a personal quest of epic proportions.
