Hot Knives: A Slacker Odyssey

Director and crew in attendance, all the way from Ottawa. Peter Monet (director,writer, producer) Phil Caracas (actor) Lee Demabre (editor)

Phil Caracas (Harry Knuckles, Jesus Christ Vampire Hunter) stars in a modern day slacker odyssey.

Stan (Phil Caracas) is a bumbling slacker who, despite approaching middle age, continues to be a popular party animal with no apparent responsibilities. His next-door neighbour (Gabriela Svoboda) loses her dog and the hapless Stan suddenly has purpose in his life. Find the missing pooch! His mission becomes an existential journey into the self and the dangerous world around him. His investigations uncover a labyrinth of conspiracies and skullduggery that blow his mind and will most certainly blow yours. Be prepared for the wild ride that is Hot Knives!

Hot Knives is the culmination of a five year effort on the part of a rag tag group of film buffs from Ottawa. Filmed entirely in and around the Ottawa area, this project was truly a community effort. Hot Knives is the first feature film by director/producer Peter Monet, an Ottawa born and raised filmmaker whose work to date has been primarily in documentaries and television. He is most well known for his human rights documentaries: East Timor: Betrayed But Not Beaten and Papua Merdeka; both featuring and narrated by famed MIT professor Noam Chomsky.
