… will be revealed tomorrow, according to Realscreen, TIFF being Toronto International Film Festival, prestigious and like other big festivals (Berlin, Cannes and Venice) nowadays putting a good focus on documentaries, or as they call it in the trade magazine, non-fiction.
But already revealed to be in the programme is a new film by Liz Garbus (“Bobby Fischer Against the World”) titled “Love, Marilyn”. Here is what the programmer of the TIFF, Thom Powers, says about the anticipated and star-filled Marilyn Monroe doc: “It takes a very innovative approach in how to deal with these recently discovered boxes of books and letters. Liz decided to reach out to some of the most interesting performers working today [to voice the letters], although that’s only one aspect of the film.
“But what was a revelation to me about this film is that Marilyn Monroe is such a ubiquitous figure in popular culture, but when you really get into the story, you realize how much you don’t know about her. I think she emerges in this film as more of a three dimensional person.”
