I’m off to Toronto this weekend to check out a few of the films that are screening as part of the Toronto International Film Festival [TIFF] — a charitable, not-for-profit cultural organization. All up, there will be 335 films from 64 countries screening over ten days, so I’ll be scrambling to fit a few in, but some of the highlights include Mr. Nobody [photo above], ‘which tells the story of Nemo, the world’s oldest man’; Crab Trap, ‘a meditative look at daily life in a remote village on the Pacific coast of Colombia’; and She, A Chinese, ‘a hybrid of documentary, creative writing, visual poetry and cinema’.
