Cruelty, Mystery and Short Films all on the Menu Today
Michael J. Bassett, reviens présenter son film Wilderness Synesthesia, en présence du réalisateur Toru Matsuura
Fantasia Film Festivals last week has started off big. A grand day awaits you with reruns you cannot miss, well renowned names and highly estimated movies.
Michael J. Bassett is coming back to present his latest movie, Wilderness. If you did not have the chance last time around due to insufficient seats, you must not miss this occasion. There will be a Q&A session afterwards, right before Bassett leaves for England. The British Council will present yet another Montreal premiere. The movie is called Isolation and will be showing at Concordias Hall building at 19h30. For tomorrow, all eyes will be on Werner Herzog, who will present his latest science fiction picture, The Wild Blue Yonder, a Canadian premiere.
Undeniably, Fantasia is assigning great importance to European pictures. In addition to the features programmed, there will be a series of short films provided by our French cousins. Come and see their latest work entitled Liberté, Égalité, Fantastique: French and Belgian Shorts, today in the J.A. De Sève room at 17h15.
You have the opportunity to see much-awaited Korean movie, The Red Shoes, premiering in Canada or discover (again) the controversial The Glamorous Life Of Sachiko Hanai. To end the night, Toru Matsuura will present his latest picture, Synesthesia, premiering internationally, and he will then gladly answer any questions you have.
