Deep Inside Clint Star brings us into the lives of some (extra)ordinary young Canadians. Filmmaker Clint Alberta plays the leading role of Clint Star who invites the viewer to meet his group of Native friends. Exploring issues of identity, sexuality and culture (and 500 years of oppression) with humour and grace, Alberta follows Hugo the punk-rocker, Becky, an unfortunate dreamer, Harvey, a young gay man who recently came out, and many others through the ups and downs of life. Known for his playful and creative style, Alberta does not disappoint with this documentary and is not afraid to turn the camera on himself.
