“Offers a touching and daringly unconventional reminder of how no approach to filmmaking is inherently bad with the right mind at the helm.”~Consequence of Sound

Aroview: A wonderfully outré yet comedy starring Saturday Night Live’s Kyle Mooney as a young man whose only connection to the world are his eccentric parents and an obsession with a little-known children's TV show about a magic bear saving the world.

But all is not what it seems when he is discharged into the real world, and he must adapt to new norms while endeavouring to become a film-maker himself in order to finish the storyline. There is much to enjoy in this compassionate and generous paean to (80s) nostalgia and the infectious nature of following your bliss.
