Princess Margaret Blvd.
Kazik Radwanski’s breakout short, an intimate, aesthetically accomplished portrait of a woman gripped by Alzheimer’s, collected a bevy of trophies on its festival tour and announced MDFF as a company to watch.
Out in That Deep Blue Sea
An unstable real-estate agent suffers corporate burnout and parental crisis in Radwanski’s Genie-nominated snapshot of midlife stagnation. Canada’s Top Ten Shorts 2009.
Abstracting close-ups and disembodied voices mark Radwanski’s formalist short, a chronicle of two Bosnian labourers renovating a home in Toronto’s Greektown. Selected for Locarno, TIFF, New York FF, and BFI London FF.
Point and Line to Plane
The latest marvel from Sofia Bohdanowicz (MS Slavic 7, Never Eat Alone) reunites the Toronto director with her onscreen counterpart Deragh Campbell for an exquisite meditation on grief, meaning-making, and art. Selected for TIFF, New York FF, and the Cahiers du Cinéma-curated program “Le Cinéma comme il va” at Centre Pompidou, Paris.
