Yesterday was the Canadian Premiere of the controversial Danish film, Offscreen hosted by actor / cinematographer Nicolas Bro. After the screening, he graciously answered questions from the astonished audience, revealing, among other things, that director Christopher Bo, in his effort to attain maximum realism, shot most of the film in a series of 40-minute long takes! He will repeat the experience this afternoon for the second screening of Offscreen. For all of you who wont be able to make it, do not fret since Nicolas Bro will come once more to meet the Fantasia audience to present Anders Thomas Jensen's acclaimed Adams Apples, winner at the BIFFF, starring the excellent Mads Mikkelsen (Pusher I et II).
If you enjoyed Offscreen and Adams Apples, well youll surely like Uro, presented on July 16th and 18th around 9 PM.
On that note, have a great festival!!!
