Toronto Filmmakers: MDFF and Sofia Bohdanowicz
With directors Kazik Radwanski, Antoine Bourges, Sofia Bohdanowicz in person. Discussion moderated by Adam Nayman.
This spotlight on three emerging filmmakers from Toronto—Antoine Bourges and Kazik Radwanski (founders of the production and screening collective Medium Density Fibreboard Films) and experimental filmmaker Sofia Bohdanowicz—will be followed by a discussion (at the Saturday program only) led by film critic Adam Nayman. Cutaway (Dir. Kazik Radwanski, 2014, 7 mins.) captures fleeting glimpses and intimate details of uncertainty and loss. Green Crayons (Dir. Kazik Radwanski, 2010, 10 mins.) is a luminous portrait of two reckless young boys. Woman Waiting (Dir. Antoine Bourges, 2011, 15 mins.) is about a woman faced with poverty. William in White Shirt (Dir. Antoine Bourges, 2014, 12 mins.) follows a young man struggling with the decision about visiting his young son for the first time.
Sofia Bohdanowicz’s trilogy of short films, Modlitwa (A Prayer) (2013, 7 mins.), Wieczór (An Evening) (2013, 19 mins.), and Dalsza Modlitwa (Another Prayer) (2013, 7 mins.), focus on the filmmaker’s relationship with her grandmother.
