On the Streets of TIFF 2015

We continue our post coverage of TIFF by taking it directly to the streets. Rain didn’t stop film aficionados from enjoying the scene and it didn’t stop the actors and filmmakers either. We interviewed Pan Nalin, a great filmmaker best known for the film Samsara, a critically acclaimed film about love and spiritual enlightenment.  Nalin discussed film’s impact on society, breaking down language barriers in art, and the types of films current audiences gravitate towards at many film festivals.

Rodney V.Smith, director of Out of Time, discussed the sci-fi genre and the “true face of Toronto.” Both directors provided great insight behind the art of filmmaking.




“Today psychopathy reveals itself ever more clearly as a social epidemic and, more precisely, a socio-communicational one. If you want to survive you have to be competitive and if you want to be competitive you must be connected, receive and process continuously an immense and growing mass of data. This provokes a constant attentive stress, a reduction of the time available for affectivity. These two tendencies, inseparably linked, provoke an effect of devastation on the individual psyche: depression, panic, anxiety, the sense of solitude and existential misery. But these individual symptoms cannot be indefinitely isolated, as psychopathology has done up until now and as economic power wishes to do. It is not possible to say: “You are exhausted, go and take a vacation at Club Med, take a pill, make a cure, get the hell away from it all, recover in the psychiatric hospital, kill yourself.” - Franco 'Bifo' Berardi
