Here is last set of hotdocs reviews for 2008! My screenings this year were cut a bit short by the combined effect of the TTC strike and other weekend plans. Even with a few days out for transit meetings, other cultural events and visiting friends, hotdocs was a great way to spend a week. The films were overall very much worth seeing — either I picked particularly well, or there is less filler here than in the main film festival in September.
Included in this set:
- Dear Zachary: A Letter to a Son About His Father
- Crisis: Behind a Presidential Commitment
