Shadowed: International Short Films on Trauma
Saturday November 5 / 1:30 PM
WORKMAN THEATRE (651 Dufferin Street)
(Unfortunately this venue is not wheelchair accessible. TTC Station: Dufferin)
In this very special program of contemporary short films from around the world, people are caught in the present but living with the past, an all-too-common condition of contemporary life, not to mention a burden on 'sanity'. In 1 Kilogram, a woman grieving a lost child is confronted by laughter at a recovery group. In the documentary A Woman and Her Car, another woman takes a fearless road trip to the source of her trauma. In Endless Night, a man arrives in Paris in search of the wife he thought he lost to madness, and in My Last Summer a boy learns a secret about a girl that brings childhood to an end.
