The Manor

Official Selection Hot Docs Canadian Internation Documentary Festival

Shawney Cohen considers himself a filmmaker, but he's actually been a strip club manager for longer. When he was six years old his father bought “The Manor,” a small-town strip club attached to a seedy 32-room motel. Thirty years after the purchase, the family's extravagant lifestyle has got the better of this family. His father has seen his weight balloon to 400 pounds, while Shawney's anorexic mother struggles to survive at 85 pounds. Hoping to understand what happened to his once-recognizable family, Shawney spends three years filming in a mirky world of strippers, drugs and family feuds. Told with humour and frankness, "The Manor" is an intimate portrait of a family struggling to understand the ties that bind. (c) TVO Doc Studio Official Trailer
