ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the film "Tarnation" by Jonathan Caouette. The film is an 88-minute autobiographical documentary detailing the filmmaker's experiences growing up in a troubled American family, has been garnering buzz during the past year, touring Sundance and Cannes and earning praise from critics such as Roger Ebert, as well as the executive producer support of Gus Van Sant and John Cameron Mitchell. A couple years ago, Caouette discovered Apple's iMovie while working on a short film called "The Hospital" in New York. He began uploading his home-movie footage onto his iMac to serve as flashback for the film's main character.
