|Lunarcy! plays in TIFF Docs|
The Toronto International Film Festival has announced films for the TIFF Docs, Midnight Madness, Vanguard, City to City, TIFF Kids, and TIFF Cinemateque Series. From Finding Nemo 3D to Rob Zombie, the festival looks to be fun for the whole family:
9.79* | Daniel Gordon, United Kingdom World Premiere
Daniel Gordon’s 9.79* looks at the legacy of the 100-metre men’s final at the 1988 Seoul Olympics, when gold medalist Ben Johnson tested positive for anabolic steroids and scandal reigned. For the first time ever, the eight athletes who ran that infamous race tell their story.
Artifact | Bartholomew Cubbins, USA World Premiere
The band Thirty Seconds to Mars and lead singer Jared Leto fight an excruciating lawsuit with EMI while writing songs for their album This is War.
A World Not Ours | Mahdi Fleifel, United Kingdom/Lebanon/Denmark World Premiere
A World Not Ours is an intimate, often humorous, portrait of three generations of exile in the refugee camp of Ain El-Helweh, in southern Lebanon. Based on a wealth of personal recordings and historical footage, it is a sensitive and illuminating study of belonging, friendship and family.
The Act of Killing | Joshua Oppenheimer, Denmark/Norway/United Kingdom World Premiere
In a place where killers are celebrated as heroes, these filmmakers challenge unrepentant death-squad leaders to dramatize their role in genocide. The result is a surreal, cinematic journey, not only into the memories and imaginations of mass murderers, but also into a frighteningly banal regime of corruption and impunity. Executive produced by Errol Morris.
