When the owner of a struggling comic book store faces eviction, he must snap out of his fantasy world and becomehis own hero in order to save his store, his friendship, and himself.
Kooperman is a smart, character-driven comedy bro-mance that blends rich visuals with a driving laugh-out-loud plotline, while commenting on society's obsession with superheroes in an age of apathy.
Shot on beautiful Prince Edward Island by first time feature director Harmony Wagner, this film was selected for the 2014 Telefilm Canada Microbudget Production Program and showcases a rich soundtrack from darlings of the Canadian indie music scene.
“Kooperman is wacky, zany...it's current...it's meaningful, it's meaningless.”
- John Dunsworth, A.K.A. Mr. Lahey of The Trailer Park Boys
