Are we really at the end of Hot Docs?! Oh wait…1 more day. Whew.
Like stories? 2 choice offerings totally worthy of pants:
6:30 PM Isabel Bader Theatre Theatre Screening with Do Not Resist
Got an insider tip…the footage of the white cop shooting a black civilian is not as it seems. (How sad is it that one has to ask which cop shooting incidence?). These short docs excel far better than the news.
A Strange Love Affair With Ego
4:30 PM Scotiabank Theatre 7
This recommendation comes from Girth Radio’s lovely Social Media Manager Alissa Santiago. From the Hot Docs blurb: “A Strange Love Affair With Ego is a tremendous tribute that plays with absence and presence as a way to expand society’s categories of confidence and artistic expression.” If you know Alissa you know this one is worth heeding.
Sammy Younan Is All ID and No Ego: W T F
Ziggy Was Here January 8, 1947 – January 10, 2016
