The news is finally out: ZOOLOGY
is having its North America premiere at TIFF Toronto International Film Festival
Contemporary World Cinema* section, before heading to San Sebastian and Austin Fantastic Fest in late September.
Dimitri Epides has this to say
about ZOOLOGY for TIFF:
"Pavlenkova gives a remarkable lead performance, for which she won the Best Actress prize at the Kinotavr Film Festival. Her animated, doll-like features draw us into a fairytale world of loneliness, otherness, and fear."
And adds that "with Zoology, Ivan I. Tverdovsky again shows himself to be a director with an original cinematic vision, an artist who does not hesitate to explore the uncommon and extraordinary in the service of great sincerity."
Screening dates are:
Thursday, September 8, 1:30PM (press & industry)
Friday, September 9, 4:15PM
Sunday, September 11, 4:15PM
Sunday, September 18, 2:45PM
