Asylum of Spoons is a chilling and evocative film adaptation of the original stage work choreographed by Allen Kaeja, with additional choreography by Karen Kaeja and directed by Allen Kaeja and Mark Adam. Asylum of Spoons chronicles the underlying fears, impulsive acts, unspoken desires, longings for acceptance and the power of overwhelming love in a truly eccentric family. Playing with a turn-of-the-century aesthetic and following a dominant Matriarch through her great manor, she strives to attain absolute control. Asylum of Spoons challenges our inherent need for familial love against all odds!

Asylum of Spoons has been broadcast across Canada on Bravo!, ArTV Quebec, and in New Zealand. It has been screened around the world in festivals including InVideo Festival (Italy), Regensberg (Germany), Clermont-Ferrand (France), Sopottfilm Festival (Poland), and American Dance Festival – Dance on Screen (USA). It was nominated in the Playback Magazine: Best Canadian Film for Television and at the Banff World Television Awards for Best Performance, and it was one of six films (out of 1,000 worldwide) short-listed for the Jury’s Grand Prize (which was won by Martin Scorsese for No Direction Home: Bob Dylan).
