A Must-Read: Adam Nayman on Toronto DIY Filmmakers

"In the course on the history of Toronto cinema that I teach at the University of Toronto, I try to place Radwanski’s film in conversation with seminal titles like Don Owen’s Nobody Waved Goodbye (1964) and Don Shebib’s Goin’ Down the Road, as well as Morley Callaghan’s key Canadian modernist novel Strange Fugitive (1930), with which it shares both a calculatedly hardscrabble aesthetic and a poetically dismal view of its host metropolis."
Follow the link to read a great piece that contextualizes the emerging trend of young Toronto directors within Canadian film history, Friends from the North: Adam Nayman on the Canadian filmmakers in First Look 2015.
