Tarnation

Jonathan Caouette started shooting his own movies of his life when he was eight years old. In 2004 he collated and edited all the Super 8 and DV footage into a film of his life. Sounds dull uh? It isn’t.

The film is called “Tarnation” and it documents the life of his Mother and himself caught up in a nightmare of psychiatric induced madness including drugging and repeated brain shock treatment.

The film, though hugely disturbing, was a sensation when it was shown at “Sundance 2004”. Watch out for it at the video store.
