The near future. Trouble looms over Vancouver’s lotus-eating shores. Santa Claus is in town bent on interrupting plans to dig a hole to China to export oil. A gorilla has escaped into Stanley Park and is plotting an even bigger escape into outer-space itself. A yuppie goes for a jog…and then things get weird. #multimedia #play #goseeit #OiltheHole2013 (
