Mitchell Kezin | Documentary | 98min | 2013 | Canada, USA
Pop music tackles tough subjects like war, racism and inequality. Music evolves with the times, helping frame our vision of the world. So why, when Christmas rolls around, are we still stuck cozying up (again) with Bing Crosby, hoping for a blanket of snow?
The film follows Director (and Christmas music junkie) Mitchell Kezin as he unveils twelve of his most cherished, alternative Christmas songs. Hitting the road to hang with the holiday heroes who share his passion, Mitchell’s quixotic quest uncovers the stories that lay deep inside the grooves, uncovering irreverent and heartfelt insights into how each of these forgotten songs came to be.
