Rob Vilar, the most criminally unknown actor to have walked the planet Earth. Salvaged from a dumpster near the National Screen Institute's offices in Winnipeg, this video is the seminal preface to this man's story and his evolving craft. A pandemonium of film clips and reenactments celebrate the origins of Vilar's artistic ingenuity, while a portrait of Winnipeg and its underground enterprises are epitomized. At last, we have a star!
