|Main cast:||Jonathan Caouette|
|Synopsis:||Tarnation is thirty-one year old director Jonathan Caouettes inspiring documentary self-portrait, chronicling his chaotic upbringing in a dysfunctional Texas family and the unexpected relationship that develops with his mentally-ill mother Renee. Caouette has been documenting his life since he was eleven years old. With Tarnation, he weaves a psychedelic whirlwind of snapshots, Super-8 home movies, answering machine messages, video diaries, early short films, snippets of 80s pop culture and dramatic re-enactments to create an epic portrait of an American family torn apart by dysfunction and reunited through the power of love. Tarnation begins in 2003 as Caouette learns of his mothers lithium overdose in his native Texas. Faced with the haunting remnants of his past, including a family legacy of mental illness, abuse, and neglect, Caouette returns home to aid in his mother's recovery. Slipping back into the archives of his youth, we watch Caouette grow up on camera, seeking escape from family trauma through musical theatre, B-grade horror flicks and the forging of his identity through popular culture. Tarnation is a raw and sensual display of self-destruction and rebirth that announces the arrival of an exceptional new cinematic visionary.|
