…and I’m getting ready.
After a bit of a bumpy ticket-purchasing ride, with a lot of my top picks off-sale due to my cheapness is buying a discounted Daytime Pack, I still have a pretty awesome schedule over the 10-day Festival. Zouheir is taking a few days off so that he can get to more of the screenings this year.
Gadon is probably best known in her role of Emma Jung in A Dangerous Method.
On Friday we’ll see a couple of documentaries:
- The Gatekeepers, summarized on TIFF site:
In an unprecedented and candid series of interviews, six former heads of the Shin Bet — Israel’s intelligence and security agency — speak about their role in Israel’s decades-long counterterrorism campaign, discussing their controversial methods and whether the ends ultimately justify the means.
Apparently, there will be two (former?) generals in attendance.
On Saturday, we’re looking forward to screenings of Hotel Transylvania, Inch’Allah, and The Attack. The first is an animated feature with a star-studded cast. The second two examine the Palestinian question in the West Bank. There are quite a few films set in the Middle East at this years festival and we’re hoping to see most of them.
More to come.
