Synopsis

A documentary fiction hybrid concerning censorship, circumcision, and former prime minister Pierre Trudeau. Peter (1), a typist obsessed with Pierre Trudeau, is hired by Peter (2), a grad student, to type his paper on circumcision. Shortly thereafter, Peter (1) has a virtual flirtation with Peter (3), a video artist he meets in a bar, by tapping out the seductive text on imaginary keyboards. The three Peters’ paths intersect with increasing regularity, much to their peril, while interviews are interspersed with artists and writers John Oswald, A.A. Bronson, Linda Griffiths, and Tom Waugh, who discuss the intricacies of copyright law as it relates to art.
