Ferris’s Room tracks Toronto artist Sarah Keenlyside as she travels to Chicago to recreate Ferris Bueller’s iconic bedroom as part of celebrations for the 30th anniversary of John Hughes’s classic comedy. Director Ryan Mains documents Sarah’s process as she tracks down replicas of Ferris’s prized possessions, packs up her car for the cross-border trip, and works against the clock to get Ferris’s Room ready in time for the big day. Along the way, she faces unexpected challenges, meets super fans who keep the spirit of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off alive, and reveals how art (whether it’s a nostalgic installation or a lighthearted film) brings us together.
